Big Girl Dreams

Me: "I'll tell you when you're an old lady, I promise."

Tiny Grown Up: "When I'm an old lady you'll be dead . . . maybe."

Me: "Well I promise to try not to die for a very long time, but right now you're a little girl and little girls should worry about little girl things like sparkly shoes and flowery dresses."

Tiny Grown Up: "Mom, I'm not like that any more."

Me: "You're not like what?"

Tiny Grown Up: "I'm not a little girl, I'm a big girl, with big girl dreams now."

Me: "You're right you are a big girl now. What are your big girl dreams?"

Tiny Grown Up: "Heroes."

Me: "What kind of heroes?"

Tiny Grown Up: "The kind that I can't be.  The kind with super powers that save people!"


I love this kid.

Tricking the Toothfairy

My Tiny Grown Up thought it would be a fantastic idea to trick the Toothfairy!  Our puppy lost a tooth and we happened to find it.  Well, she thought she could put it under her pillow and get a surprise in the morning. Apparently even the Toothfairy  knows the difference between dog teeth and people teeth.  So the Toothfairy found the tooth and left a Milkbone treat in its place.

Zelda & A Tiny Grown Up

Things seem to be going pretty well for my lovely girls.  My Tiny Grown Up is definitely putting forward the effort to become a good dog parent. She is doing a great job helping to feed, train play with, and care for Miss Zelda. And Miss Zelda has really bonded well with the family and is doing her very best to keep everyone safe from the horrible vacuum.  I love watching these two play together.
