I took the girls to the park today. We were looking at leaves and I was explaining how leaves have veins and showing Victoria them. Then I said people also have veins inside their bodies and I showed her my blue lines in my arm. I tried to look for hers on her arm, but couldn't find any. She says, "Don't worry Mom. I"ll grow some."
I got the coolest compliment the other day. My parents came over to watch the girls while Jer and I went out to dinner. After getting all dolled up, I picked up Victoria and asked her how does Mommy look? Her response- "You have pretty hair. You look like Cinderella." Ahhh. Victoria really is a girly girl. Yesterday she wanted to play beauty shop with me and Bella. She styled our hair and then used a little circular rattle with a smiley face to pretend to put makeup on our faces. I've never taught her that. Funny. I guess she's seen me.
What a fun night! Victoria loved going trick or treating with Little Miss Muffet Kate. She went as a Butterfly Fairy Princess and Bella was the Dancing Frog from WB. Although Bella was not having a good time, and I had to take her back early- teething issues. I went to Victoria's school earlier in the day for her Halloween party. She ate a cookie and paraded around her building-talk about chaos- have you ever seen 8 classes of 2 year olds on the prowl. After I picked her up from school, we went home and watched the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. It's amazing how classic cartoons never die. Both of us were thoroughly entertained. During the trick or treating, Victoria played with her flashlight Grandma Carol gave her. Although, she pretended it was a light savor, after seeing a man with a Luke Skywalkercostume. When Daddy and Victoria got home, they dumped their loot in the middle of the floor and dug in. Her favorite candy was the Gummy Fish. Thank goodness for toothbrushes. I love Halloween.
