I asked her if she slid down it (a la..say say oh playmate, come out and play with me, and bring your dolly's three, climb up my apple tree. Slide down my rainbow...)
She informed me that she, in fact, had. With all of her friends.
That is, those who sleep in bed with her: Elmo, Big Bird, Curious George, Bob, JoJo, baby, and Otto.
She made it a point to tell me that Shamu did NOT slide down the rainbow.
"Why not?" I asked.
"Because he doesn't have a hiney," she said.
I guess the we only slide on our hiney's rule has taken effect.
Splurge: Big Girl Bed
It's on its way. The big girl bed is on its way. Is she ready for it? Without question. Is her mommy? Not a chance.
I guess that's the conundrum of parenthood: praying for them (and teaching them how) to grow and live into responsible, independent, and loving people...while at the same time wanting them to stay little for just a little longer.
