See - every single word is known. She also knows the dance but she refuses to do it alone and my back was agony this morning. She won’t sing along to the solo parts - in her own words “I caaaaaaaan’t, that’s Pinkie Pie’s bit”
Also, sorry for the really angle - I didn’t look at how I was holding the camera and therefore kinda didn’t realise I was holding it the wrong way. Oops.
Jamie’s always had those one or two shoes that she would be super obsessed with for a few weeks. She would get excited to wacth them, play games based on the shows and, best of all, ask about all things that featured in the show - such as what to do in case of a fire when her obsession was fireman sam.
But these obsessions were only ever fads. They lasted a few weeks, 2 months at the most and while she would still love the show once the fad had past she would move on to something new. And this was awesome. For lots of reasons - wide range of interests, learning about lots of different things, always meant I had plenty of choice in what to buy her…
MUMMY DIDN’T GET DRIVEN INSANE BY HAVING TO CONSTANTLY WATCH THE SAME SHOW OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
That last one was very important. And I’m only now realising just how important it really was.
Jamie’s latest obsession is the new My Little Pony show. More specifically the movie, though she loves the tv show too. At first I had no problem with this. It seems much better then what I used when I was little, it’s fun and I can totally understand why she seems to identify so much with Pinkie Pie - seriously.
But she’s made me watch that damn movie more times then I care to count in the last few days. Almost everything for christmas is pony related. Either that or Lala Loopsy, the other new obsession. I even looking at My Little Pony wallpaper.
This new obsession has gone on for ages…. We both know all the words to all the songs in that movie. When watching it tomorrow (and I know I will end up having to watch it at some point, or 2 or 3) I may just end up crying.
I mean, it’s super adorable and I love how happy it makes her and how joyous she gets when she’s singing and dancing along and how excited she gets whenever Pinkie Pie (pony or human) is on screen. But I’ve watched it so much that I’m actually starting to miss the Fireman Sam days….and I never thought I would say that.
Apparently I once told my Mum that you could never have too many cuddly toys on your bed. I take it back. I take it all back. This was 2 minutes before bed time. She didn’t want me to move them, I didn’t want her to be buried in an avalance of toys. We compromised with letting half of them stay and the other half going on the floor where she can both see and reach them.
This is what happens when I get bored and Jamie sits still for more than 5 seconds….
I love these sort of photo’s where she looks like she’s just off in another world. They always seem to be my favourites.
Being a butterfly, a penguin and a mermaid. Dressing up makes her so happy. =D.
|So I was lying on the floor, hiding under a blanket, telling Jamie I had gone on holiday. I had my knees bent upwards so Jamie was using them as a slide. This carried on for about 5 minutes but then my legs started to ahce so I put them down flat...|
|Me:||But my legs are aching.|
|Jamie:||Slide! Slide! (pushing my feet to try and make me bend my legs again)|
|Me:||Just give Mummy a minute. (laughing because she's tickling my feet)|
|Me:||What do you say?|
|Me:||Is this all I'm here for love? To be your slide? (bending my legs again)|
|I swear, I'm nothing but a glorified, large toy to this child.|
….just informed me that she’s brought tickets for me, her and Jamie-Louise to go see disney on ice with my brother and his family in march.
I may have, quite literally, squealed for joy.
|So I've always thought that you should always join in with your child when they play pretend. I've always done that. I love joining in with her games. And I always figured that if the parent joined in it would make things more fun for the kid and the pretend world would be expanded upon, imagination encouraged. Apparently Jamie disagrees. This was earlier today.|
|Jamie:||Mummy, me and my toys are going on the bus.|
|Me:||Wow, that's awesome. Can I come?|
|Jamie:||No, you're not playing.|
|Me:||Oh, ok then.|
|Jamie:||We're going now Mummy.|
|Me:||Ok baby. I hope you all have fun.|
|Jamie:||We will. Bye Mummy.|
|Me:||Bye baby. Come home soon - it's nearly lunch time. Bye. Love you.|
|Jamie:||(hands on hips, looking at me as if I'm insane) I'm not going anywhere Mummy, it's just pretend.|
|Jamie:||Very silly Mummy.|
She has a fascination for balancing on things - and she really likes flying.
