shiver me timbers

Today was Pirate Day at Mimi’s school. Even though it seemed like every other kid in her class specifically purchased costumes for this special day, I just found some miscellaneous items from Mimi’s wardrobe and around the house. Surprisingly, she was not pleased about this particular costume. Mimi is definitely going through a girly girl and princess stage. I tried to convince her that she was still wearing mostly pink, but she kept pulling off her bandana to try to replace it with a headband. Silly girl.

Of course, when I take a picture of Mimi Annie must have her picture taken as well. Below is what she dressed up in just for her photo op. Annie had her first play date with a friend from school today. She didn’t have school today, so we decided it would be okay to invite one of her classmates over. Her friend has a lot of spunk and calls Annie on the phone all the time. The couple of times I’ve had to tell this friend that Annie is busy doing something else she told me to get her on the phone anyway. Obviously, I don’t let a 5-year-old order me around, especially one that’s not mine.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention that after church yesterday Annie asked us how old she has to be before she can have a boyfriend. Mike and I were so shocked we didn’t really have a response for her. After a few seconds I told her 37. Where in the world is she getting this information from?!?!?

    Cute little pirate wench! And cute Annie in her oo-la-la cape!

    That is certainly a good age to be allowed to have a boyfriend.

    And kids who have no phone manners are one of my pet peeves too. I think parents should be monitoring phone calls (as in standing right there helping them with what to say, or even practicing beforehand), especially at such a young age! Matt and Hayley have a friend that calls and first thing he says is “Who is this?” Where is his mother when he calls????
