27 Dresses

No, I didn't even watch this movie.

I hope I don't jinx it, but another advantage of having a child early is getting her to be a flower girl in a lot of weddings.  Either Karl and I have a lot of friends, or people don't know anyone with kids at flower girl age, but I think Mia has kinda hit a pretty good quota on weddings.

These are her flower girl stints so far:

1. The first one was in Chicago!  How social!  If you squint, you can see in the background, it says The Chicago School.  Yes, she was a tiny munchkin then and yes, pat on mommy's back for surviving the long haul flight with a toddler.  She was less than 2 years old.  It was in June but the weather was pretty cool so she was all bundled up in the picture taking.

Mia's Rendition of One Direction's What Makes You Beautiful

Last Sunday morning, I caught my daughter struggling to take a video of herself while singing "What makes you beautiful" by One Direction.  I told her that I would take her video and she replied, "Great idea mom!".  Here's a snippet of the song.  She sang the entire thing.  Afterwards, she got dizzy with all the hair flipping she actually told me, "I'm tired from singing, Mom!"  No retakes, all done in one take.


P.S. She was pointing at an actual door when she sings door in the lyrics and no, I did not teach her the choreography.  She made all those up herself!

Of Posters

When I was younger(a long long time ago...), I had Leonardo Di Caprio's picture on the ceiling of my room.  Blame it on Titanic, but I thought he was such a cutie patootie.  Basically the concept was he was the last person I see at night and first person I see in the morning.  Don't judge.

I had a good talk with Mia last week when she was making careless mistakes on her quizzes.  Karl and I told her that she was better than what she was getting and she should know better (Yes, our daughter is only 5 and we discuss this).  I worked harder on the worksheets I gave her and just hoped she would do better Crossing my fingers that the maid isn't answering them.

Ombre Nails

Sorry, I've been really busy doing worksheets for Mia everyday.  I have been guessing what she's up to in school because every time I ask her, "What's up?", she just tells me, "School is fun!" "School is great!", which is good and I'm not complaining.

Anyways, here's a picture of my daughter's kikay toenails.  I saw this trend on Lauren Conrad.  Yes, who knew, I knew her?  Hello, generation gap!
