Dressed to Kill

Mim comes up with something every day that makes me laugh. She still has her imaginary friends, Goki and Bobo. (They went to church with her yesterday in her dress pockets.) But she's added a new imaginary friend, which I have trouble even calling "imaginary". Her new buddy is Baby Jesus. It causes a little awkwardness here in the house.

For instance, the other day Mim said Baby Jesus was eating lunch with her. I sat down to eat my lunch and she said,
"No! Mommy you sittin' on Baby Jesus!"
And I had to move, of course, because there's just something disturbing about sitting down on Baby Jesus.

This morning Mim put on her princess crown with the requisite plastic sparkly shoes and scepter and said,
"I hunting for deer!"
And she proceeded to stalk around the house on her quest. Zaya came in and said he was hunting for secrets, so I hope that their two expeditions don't cause a family crisis. The only way I can see out is if they find some very secretive deer around here somewhere.

AND it's darn near impossible for even Mama to trump an imaginary Baby Jesus.

The kid's obviously a genius. Just go ahead and give up now and let her have her way. (As if you really had a chance at being boss with the way she handles the tiara and scepter.)

I'll bet there is never a dull moment at your place! The imaginations of children is priceless.

Alright, so I did buy her the stuff, but I didn't wear it this morning. It probably wouldn't have hurt though...ruling my classroom...maybe that's where she get's it.

I can't tell if her legs are crossed or her shoes are on backwards.

I'm pretty sure that both little piggies that went to the market are in the right place. :)

I seem to remember all of Attolia's "friends" being characters from books, movies, or games too, heh heh.

oh my goodness, I wouldn't want to be caught sitting on Baby Jesus either! Your kiddos are precious and hilarious, and only hope that I give my kids enough space to be so creative themselves.
