I came in from work last Friday, and although all cars were in the driveway, it took me a while to locate my little monkeys!
I walked next door and found them playing on Sarah's swing set.
Gabbi Girl was all about the slide, while Ellie Sue only wanted to do what the big girls had planned. And as it turned out, they were swinging.
So, once she discussed her NEED to swing, they opted to let her have their seat.
Miss Sarah turned 9, thus the "big girl clothes" from Justice. That is the new Tween/ Happenin' store to shop at!
Luckily, they don't carry 3T, so we don't have to go there yet. But soon, very soon, when Ellie catches wind, we will be there too, I am quite sure!
Ok, so by now, Ellie is realizing that there is something big going down. Something she needs to be a part of. Big girls are streaming in slowly, and she is aware a party is a brewin'!
Also, Nicole starts pulling out the slip and slide!
Then, she brings out a flip flop cake,
a stack of beach towels, ....
and there is a corner full of presents. Ellie now has the complete picture!
She tells me she needs to run home and get on her bathing suit.
Oh, believe me. It is under there. Under the toulle, and gold metallic headband, and "big girl" tank top...
Yep, there is a bathing suit!
I let her walk ahead of me as I gathered our own towel and what not for swimming party.
I got Gabbi dressed too. But before I could get her out the door,
a party "helper" from next door was returning my big kid. They had decided that swimming would take place much later. For now, they were heading out on their video scavenger hunt and Ellie just needed to come back home.
THIS is how she took the news!
She just seriously has yet to realize that she is only three. She does NOT get that little fact!
Gabbi, on the other hand, is perfectly content to watch a little Yo Gabba Gabba!
My baby girl needs some baby girl friends! Daycare, by the way, has only BOYS! I am not a fan... yet! More on that later.
