Last Weekend... Pookie Recap

As many know, I was in Atlanta and Tennessee last weekend, for to see my sister and to attend a gathering of what has become a group of warm good friends. It is a yearly jaunt I make, starting six years ago when my sister, Mo, was single and we'd do this weekend together, to now where she is married with children, and I now hug on nieces and take off for a couple days to hang with friends, then to come back and hug on nieces some more.

Times change.

The Flambina is coming up on three years old this January, with her younger sister just having hit six months. She is a great big sister, viewing her baby sister as both an audience and someone to shower affection upon. It is often you hear, "Baby! Baby! Watch me!" as she tries some new trick.

Fortunately it is always something benign, like twirling in her tutu, as opposed to the Redneck howl of "Hey, Y'all, Watch this!"

Flambina is yummy and smart. She has a mind of her own and she is into repetition. Her favorite toy of the day was a felt kitty cat purse I picked up at Target for a buck. It is her "Kitty Cat Pocketbook" and she carried it everywhere.

She and I had to play the Trick or Treat game, where I stood inside the back door to the house, she walked up holding her Kitty Cat pocketbook as her candy container...

Her: *knock knock*

Me *opening door*: well, hello!

Her: Trick or Treat!

Me: Don't you look pretty! Look at you!

Her: Thank you!

Me: Let me get you some candy... *putting fake candy in her kitty cat pocketbook*

Her: Thank you! Buh, Bye!

And she'd walk away, I'd close the door, she'd spin around, and we'd do it... again... and again... and again.

At one point she got in her wagon, while I pulled her around the 10 x 10 porch, until we stopped at a 'new neighborhood' and we played for... another 10 minutes.

Holy crap. I couldn't quit laughing.

In particular as she was dressed like this....

Those would be psychadelic sunglasses with frog boots, a tutu, and under that pink jacket is her Brady Jersey, ever the Patriots fan. She's all fashion...

More on the blog meet tomorrow.

These stories are too cute. Can I therefore conclude that Bones gives her fashion tips?

I didn't even know there was a preschool casting of the Rocky Horror Picture Show...

Still Hallowe'en, was it? Heh.

Flambina would so blend here in Nu Yawk. We have adults here who dress like that, on days other than Halloween.
