2016 week thirty-eight
|Thursday evening we hit the road to drive to Tennessee! A 12.5 hour drive is so tough for little ones. We gave them as many breaks as we could when we stopped for gas. Theo loved stretching his legs behind the wheel.|
|After we did all that we could do we still had 4 hours until the wedding, so we just went to the venue to hang around the grounds.|
|V and I ran around the hills and lawns.|
|And V made friends with a horse.|
|V fulfilled one of my life goals for her to be friends with Hilary's nieces.|
|Theodore was amazing and slept through the entire ceremony.|
|V got served an entire chicken! She was thrilled.|
"I'm just a dirty princess right down to my paws!"
"C'mon Mama. Let's ask the horses if we can pet them. And if they say 'nay' then we can pet them. That's how they talk. They say 'nay'."
"Look at the beautiful wedding girls. Her name is Elsie (it's not, it's Chelsea) JUST like ELSA! Isn't that crazy! It's so special. They are JUST THE SAME!"
Said to Hilary's sister with blonde hair, "Hi. My name is Veronica. Did you know that you have white hair just like Elsa? It's really just the same."
"Mama, I figured it out! Peanuts rhyme with Penis!" She's been really into figuring out if things rhyme lately.
"Aliens are called Elliot." Nope. She's never seen E.T.
"I just really want to take a grackle home and put it in the freezer."
"Make sure I don't pee in my pants!"
"Make sure I don't fall off my chair!"
"Make sure there are no wasps in my room. They might be hiding. But you can find it and you can CLENCH it dead."
"The wasp will go in the toilet and get water and poop on it's body and the poop will make it die."
"Don't let Theodore fall in. He will get poop on his body and die."
"Hooray! They killed that man!" I dont even know what to say... It was a cartoon. It was ambiguous if he "died", but still, I don't love that she shouted this. It was the voodoo guy from Princess and the Frog.
"Someday when I'm really big I can jump over trees and step over them and climb up to the top and sit there and not fall down. I'll be really brave to know how to do that."
Vera, "I like it when bunnies jump on my hand and I can bring them home. I just really like that."
Me, "Has that ever happened to you?"
Vera, "No. No small animals or big animals ever jump on my hand to take them home because I'm not a princess."
At the hotel one of the workers asked Vera her name, she promptly responded, "I'm Veronica Princess."
V also made friends with an older gentlemen in the hotel breakfast area. Every time he would try to read the paper she would run up to him to prattle on about something or other and then run away. It turned out he was going to the same wedding we were. He was so sweet and was excited to see her again. V kept telling me, "It's just my friend. That boy who is old is my friend."
