Out for a Morning Stroll!

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!

It was so awesome that they MATCHED!!! If possible can you get a dress that matches too and then carry your daughter while she carries the dog? That would be a memory for your family and the WHOLE neighborhood!! Very Cute! W.C.C.

My dogs would have laid down and refused to budge. At 60 pounds it would have been a bit too hard to carry.

Super cute:) I remember when I was about seven I dressed my cat up in baby pajamas, wrapped it in a blanket and placed in in my doll crib. I patted him all nice and told him to get rest and that I would get him up when I got home from school. Giggle...I really thought he would still be there when I got home:) all I found was a rustled blanket and a pair of pajamas on the floor :)

Hahahaha I am so glad I started my morning with this post! My 7-yr-old is away and I so needed this. Claire is too cute and too funny. They are so headstrong at this age. And Jasmine really does look as though she's saying, "Why are you just standing there?! I'm sitting here laughing aloud in bed. Thanks for sharing.

Ha! At first I thought it was a diaper.

Oh Meg... Claire is so adorable!
What a cute scenario. Jasmine looks so helpless :)
You are brilliant to have captured the moment. This is what is so great about blogging... someday you can print this out and give it to her when her daughter is doing the same thing :)
On another note, thanks for your recent visits to La Dolfina. I've missed you and it's been such a treat to have you grace my blog.
Please tell your sister Congrats on her new baby. I can't wait for your visit.
Thanks so much for the well wishes, they mean the world to me!!
Love you!

Haha That cracked me up! I can just see the two of them on their journey in matching outfits. That brings back a few memories. Jess acted up the most out of all my kids, but she turned out to be the sweetest girl...and very respectful. I'm sure Jasmine didn't mind - probably was happy to be outside.

How adorable! Love the matching dresses! Enjoy the wonderful day, Kellie xx

Awww ... how cute that they match! I think that Jazzy needs to learn the lesson that all of us women have to learn and accept ... you have to {sometimes} sacrifice in the name of fashion :)
