Our darling girl-grand is here and I think she is so very happy. Boppy picked her up and we've been busy ever since they got to Lloyd. As we walked through the guest room I asked her, "Do you want to sleep in here tonight?" and she said, "Uh. I just like to sleep with you."
Clean sheets for Magnolia!
I bought some sparkling grape juice for her for a fancy drink and to use to make her purple cow and I swear- she and I spent twenty minutes trying to get that metal-encased cap off. Finally, Boppy came in from the garage where he'd been doing something with a car and it took him another five minutes to get the damn thing open. It was ridiculous! But the juice is delicious so all is well.
I gave her her hoody with the unicorn horn and eye-lashes on it and the sequined Christmas decoration and she was so thrilled. "It's so cozy! It's so soft!" And it fit her and she had forgotten to bring a jacket so...perfect.
And now I need to go make those cheesy noodles and fried fish. I do the fish in the air fryer and it is always delicious. One of our rituals is that I let her pick out what kind of pasta she wants to go with the cheesy sauce and tonight she wants a mixture of four different ones and so she shall have them.
We had a rousing game of Battle and now she and her grandfather are watching Shaun The Sheep.
Unfortunately, she did not bring her make-up. She said it was too messy to pack. Therefore I will not be getting a make-over. I have to tell you that I am somewhat disappointed. Perhaps tomorrow she will agree to substitute some of my make-up for her beloved Claire's brand which, of course, is the best. For those of you not in the know, Claire's is a store generally found in malls that carries everything a young girl could want from jewelry to make-up to hair accessories to bags to toys. In short- Tween Heaven.
Happy Friday, y'all.
