My Claire-Bear, she sure is a funny one. She has such energy and spunk that I sometimes want to bottle it. Hmmm, maybe that's just piss and vinegar so on second thought, I'll skip the bottling!
I would say that on most days her goal is to drive me crazy but boy does she make me smile!
She got up the other morning, got dressed and yelled that she was taking Jasmine for a walk. I happened to catch a glimpse of Jasmine out of the corner of my eye and here is what I saw........
Poor Jasmine, she was dressed up in one of Claire's doll dresses. She wasn't even moving. It was as if the dress made her frozen! I told Claire that I didn't think Jazzy was feeling it! In fact, I'm pretty sure she was hating it!
But, oh no Claire didn't care. She wasn't going to take no for an answer!
She swooped her up and said, "see, we match!"
She then rather loudly said, "And Mom, you can't stop me, I'm taking her for a walk!"
I didn't argue with her. I know which battles to pick and this one I didn't mind her winning! So I grabbed my crap-tastic camera (boy do I need a new one) and followed them outside!
I wish I could have gotten her voice on here. She was so cute trying to coax Jasmine to move her feet. I even heard her say, "Jasmine, you are so pretty baby, come on this will be fun!"
Jasmine is looking at me with that, "Help, get me outta here look!"
Claire gave up on trying to get Jasmine to walk. So she picked her up, and away they went!
Claire came home and said she was exhausted from carrying Jasmine the whole way. Yup all 4 pounds of her can exhaust a 7 year old. I think they were both pooped and well, maybe Jasmine was even a tad bit embarrassed!
