The other afternoon while Maycie took a nap I took Paisley over to the pool to swim.
We played "swimming lessons" she'd pretend to be my daughter, and I her mom. She'd splash around in the pool then get out and come over to where I was sitting, I had to greet her with "you did so good honey!" every time. I couldn't say "honey buns" or "sweetie" or "that was awesome!" If I said anything besides "you did so good honey" she was very quick to correct me.
Once we played a few more games the sun began to make me tired, so i suggested we go get snow cones, she was obviously all over that. What 3 year old could turn down a free snow cone?!
Paisley had originally requested "strawberry," but as I looked at their list of flavors and saw they had a flavor titled "princess" (Blue Cotton Candy and Pink Bubblegum) I knew her mind would be changed. When I asked her if she wanted the "princess" flavor instead her face lit up and the biggest smile came across her face. It was a definite yes.
I love spending one on one time with my nieces, and I love the friendship I have with each of them. It was such a perfect afternoon!
