I’m not sure where either one of them picks up their quirky language especially since they rarely watch TV, but Angel Girl 2.0 has mastered this art.
It was time for us to all put on our “day clothes.” The kids dressed first, ready for all the adventures a new day brings.
Followed back downstairs to my room, lacking any personal space boundaries, I was severely scrutinized as I chose an outfit for this very warm summery day.
Under her judgy and appraising almost two-year-old eye (think Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada), I stop midway and ask, “Do you like my dress?”
“Super cute, Grandma. SUPER cute.”
She turns, suddenly runs off, returning with her sparkly pink tiara.
“Here, wear this too, Grandma.”
I put it on (of course I do) and she steps back to examine me from head to toe with a serious look on her face.
“REALLY super cute, Grandma.”
For sure that’s the stamp of approval.
And then, “I want a smoothie. SMOOTHIE!”
So there we have it.
One minute a princess, and the next–in the blink of an eye-– I’m back to creating smoothie magic.
My enchanted life…
