"Mom, can we cut my hair to my ears?"

[Mom] Okay.
[Ainsley] But, pleeease, take a picture of my hair first! About 14 reminders...

She was so excited. We fixed it cute today - just put barrettes to keep the front out of her face at school. She was a cutie pie. She couldn't wait to show the kids at school.
"I can't wait to go to schooooool. The kids are going to think I'm a New Kid!"

Birthday Wishes

I wish I could stop time. Happy Birthday, Alexandra... My little baby girl is 7. So, here are her birthday wishes.

"Now that I'm 7, you can't pick out my clothes. Or tell me if they match." HELLO, I haven't picked out her clothes since she was 2!!! But, fine, now I have to keep my plentiful opinions to myself. She has no idea what she is asking of me.

"I want poached eggs, bacon and orange juice for breakfast. Peanut Butter Crackers for lunch. And.... Lentil Soup for dinner! NO MEAT!" This meat thing is soo hard. She told me "the only thing meat is good in is tacos!"
I want my hair only parted in the middle.

At school today she is baking bread. The birthday person gets to serve the rest of the class. She was really looking forward to it. She is having a spa birthday party tomorrow and she is going nuts with anticipation.
We finally got her a bicycle that fits her. She outgrew hers a while back... She was happy.

Happy birthday little Lexi-loo. We love you so much.

Joke & a good idea

At dinner the other night,
[Lexi] If you saw a pig that was a pirate, what would it be wearing?
[Mom] What?
[Lexi] A Pig Leg. Get it???

Last night before bed.
[Ainsley] Mom, I've decided to start taking a nap... That way, I can start staying up late.

[Mom] Anderson, how old are you?
[Anderson] Tooooo and a haaf.
