Me: What did you just say?
Soledad (4): Silence.
Me: Warwick! What did Soli just say?
Warwick: I don’t know.
Soledad eyes wild, with her eye brows pinched in the middle. She has a smirk on her face that is dancing in mischeviousness.
Me: Soledad! What. did. you. just. say???
Her smiles widens, she places her hand on her hip, and tilts her head to the side.
Soledad (4): Don’t hate me ’cause I’m beautiful.
And then she skipped off into the sunset.
I’m not even playing. That girl is a trip.
I don’t even know what to say.
I’m a little embarassed. A little tickled. And a lot speechless.
So much for being demure.
My pretty girl loves hair accessory “thingees”.
Maybe these are what make her feel so beautiful.
Maybe that is what she was really saying.
My mommy is so wonderful that she makes me hair accessory thingees, which in turn makes me feel beautiful, and as a result she is the best mommy in the universe. Bar none.
Yes, yes. I think that is what her 4 year old brain was trying to say.
