Like a Ninja

Today I thought seriously about calling up some of my film friends and asking them to follow me and Wanda around the house several hours per day. I need to capture her like Pooh needs to capture a Heffalump. I want every moment of her life, every morsel of her speech recorded so that when my little friend leaves me and heads to kindergarten, I can sit alone in my bathrobe reliving the glory days.

She is my buddy, my nearly constant companion and I can’t get enough of her.

Wanda goes limp and swings with no hands, her head thrown back, her arms dangling to the side. She must have her mouth open when she swings. This is called “flops.”

She likes to play outside in the rain, splashing in puddles and showering in the rain spout.
When we were at Dan’s band concert this week, Wanda was dressed like this:
A stranger came up and said, “Oh my! You’re a pretty princess.”

Wanda replied, “Yeah! I’m like a ninja!”

    I LOVE the swinging picture! If only we could all have that much fun! Wanda must want to read Shannan Hale’s book she is working on. The Princess in Black

    She is too cute! There is something extra-special about that #3 child, especially those of the princess-ninja variety. My constant companion left me for kindergarten this year, and it was agony – for me. We had three years of just the two of us with her big sisters at school all day, and then came that first day of school for her, which, while quite possibly the happiest day of her life, made me sob like a baby. A film crew would have been awfully handy, because pictures just don’t capture those hilarious things I never hear anymore. Enjoy this time with your little pink ninja, because (as I’m sure you already know all too well) it goes way, WAY too fast.

    • Oh! That is my nightmare. She has a birthday that falls right on the line at the beginning of the school year in fall of 2014 and I can’t imagine sending her that year. I’m going to drag out this special mommy time.

    Loved this post and the pictures! Yep, I bet you could get a camera crew to follow you! My kids were so cute when they were young, as well. They get cuter and cuter, so it will still be fun. There’s at least that…to go along with progress, but enjoying the moment is so important. Good for you all!
