Jennifer over at Mississippi Girl
did this little meme and tagged whoever wanted to do it. So here goes…3 things about my child.
1. She is a hoot and a half. My dad’s side of the family is Sicilian and I promise you she got the temper and the dramatic hand gestures. She makes big sweeping motions with her hands and arms to describe anything. The other night at the pool, Big (Gulley’s stepdad) asked if she wanted some ice cream and she held up her hand very dramatically and said in a tone reminiscent of Scarlett O’Hara,”Please, just let me eat my dinner or I can’t have anything else, no breakfast bars, no bananas, nothing.” As God is my witness, I’ll never go hungry again!
2. When she’s in a timeout she sits in a little chair in her room and will spit on the floor until I come get her. I play like I don’t notice because honestly, it will make it worse. It’s her little personal way of getting out her frustration and it’s harmless, but it does make me laugh on the inside.
3. Her very best friend in the world is Jacks, Gulley’s little boy. She adores him and thinks he is the greatest thing that ever lived. If I want to get her to do anything all I need to say is that Jacks does it and she’s sold. When he got stung by a bee the other day at the pool, she wouldn’t even eat her ice cream until she knew he was okay. That, my friends, is true love.
