i refuse to smile for the camera
i refuse to stop looking goofy for the camera
i will smile, but i will not look at the camera
i will smile, but only as my sister coughs
oh look, here i am smiling. that wasn't hard, was it?
in my classroom
and, of course, my super cool lunch from my incredibly awesome mommy!
So I am on the phone with Grandma Jane. Dixie and Melody remind me of a scene in a movie where prisoners are sticking their arms through the bars to reach for breadcrumbs just outside of their reach (or something) but I tell them to wait 5 minutes while I talk to her.
We talk, and I go to hand the phone to Dixie so that she can tell Gma Jane about the first day of school
GJ: I hear you did something fun yesterday!
D: Oh, I don't know.
GJ: Didn't you start school?
D: I dunno.
GJ: How was your first day?
D: I am going to hand the phone to someone who knows more about that and let them tell you.
(what, does the four-year-old suddenly have a press secretary?)
GJ: Dixie, how was school?
D: Here, Ariel wants to talk to you.
at this point, Dixie hands the phone to Melody, who puts it up to the Little Mermaid's ear.
Melody's rendition of Ariel's voice, which is suddenly very high-pitched: Laaaa, dee daaa! Hellllloooooooooooooooooooo, I'm Ariel.
Mommy: Talk to Grandma Jane, Melody
Melody: nah, you talk to her.
Can you just feel the love?
