This girl gets left behind.
Not on purpose, of course. The big kids just take off. They run like there’s no tomorrow and forget the 2 year old who is wearing 3 sizes too big cowgirl boots and has the head of hair that is always in her eyes.
So she takes the ‘stang.
Forgets to go from reverse to forward and ends up doing backwards circles in the culdesac.
But then remembers I’m there and sweetly looks up at me with a, “Please help, mama?”
And I can’t help but help. Even though I know that in 10 feet she’s gonna get stuck.
[she forgets how to steer]
And sure enough, less than 10 feet later, she’s stuck. She yells at Maria to come and help. And waits like any girl in a Mustang would wait.
Until Maria comes to rescue her.
Jamie though? Jamie has his own plans. They involve trying to sneak the trike inside for some inside triking. No dice, Jamie. No dice.
He knew he wouldn’t get away with it.
Good news for you mamas of little girls. I have a giveaway. One of you lucky readers will win a really adorable black and pink Sprinkles for Sprouts flower headband just in time for Valentine’s Day. I bought it about a month ago with a giveaway in mind. I know it’s not even February yet, but if you are like me, you take full advantage of upcoming holidays and that first day of February, you bust out the pink, reds, blacks and whites. Celebrations are important.
So if you want to win a headband, leave a comment here telling me why you love Valentine’s Day. If you say you hate Valentine’s Day because it’s just a made-up holiday so that flower and card companies can make money, you won’t win. Holidays rock, no matter what. I’ll randomly pick a winner. Oh, and you totally don’t have to have a little girl to win or enter. I bet you all know at least one little girl who would rock this headband like it’s no big thing.
