That's What Solana Said - August
I picked Solana up from a pool party. As we began to drive home she asked, "Mommy, when can I have a play-date with some of my friends?"
"Well, Solana, I don't know. You were just at a party and that's kind of like a play-date. I only get to have you for one and a half more weeks before school starts again. And we've been so busy the past few weeks I don't feel like I've had enough time to do anything fun with you. We're always running around to camps or the store, or the doctor. I think I just want to keep you to myself until school starts so we can relax and do some fun stuff together."
"Yeah. I think I know what you mean, Mommy, and I feel the same way."
First my heart melted and then I felt the pressure to come up with something really fun to do! :-)
I was juicing lemons and one squired all over my arm. Solana wiped a drop off my forearm and tasted it. "Mmm. Tasty! And I do say so myself!
Solana: ....because my bootie's wet.
Me: You're bootie's wet?
Solana: It's a long story.
(Turns out she fell in the baby pool when I had let her stay outside to wade in it.)
We went out to eat at a sushi restaurant and Solana decided she needed to visit the Ladies Room.
"So...if I go to the bathroom in a place like this will they have leaves instead of toilet paper?"
While watching an episode of Wild Krattz on PBS Solana starts telling me. "I like that boy with the green the most. I like how his hair goes like this on top. And it's brown, like mine. And he always knows all the stuff. That's the kind of boy that I like. See! Him! I like him the best."
Normally, I would scoff at little girls saying that they like boys but something about the way she said it was so innocent and sweet. I don't even think she realized she was saying she liked a boy! Heeheehee. Sweet girl. :-)
By the way, I just read his character description. I like this boy. http://www.pbs.org/parents/wildkratts/show-characters.html
