One of the afternoons, I took the girls out to our favorite swing (my parents have like four...or five?...on the property!) and had changed their clothes because I knew I wanted some cute pictures. However, in order to convince them to wear their warm boots, I had to compromise and let them wear their wings. Bean wears wings probably 17 out of 24 hours in a day. Sweet Pea wants to be just like her cousin. So, wings it was.
Have I mentioned how much I love mothering girls?
Because I love it.
Like, super love it.
Especially girls who aren't afraid of anything.
|Yup, a Daddy Long Leg. Sweet Pea calls them, "Ew! Daddy Psiders!"|
|I love this because it is so absolutely genuine. They were telling each other a joke.|
|I just want to freeze them in time.|
After the swing, I put my camera away and we played with the zip swing in the woods and went fairy hunting. Oh, the fairy hunting! Sweet Pea took it very, very seriously. "Shhhhh! Fayr-wees! Come out!" They looked all over in the flowers and grasses and I told them that because the sun had set the fairies were sleeping. "Shhh! Night-night, fayr-wees!"
Then we saw a chipmunk and it was all over. We were collecting acorns to leave for the fairies, but once we saw the chipmunk all of the acorns were for him. Obviously.
