Miss Sunshine has developed quite the imagination (and personality) lately. We had a very interesting conversation on my way to work the other day, and it went something like this:
(I am driving and Miss Sunshine is in her car seat behind me.)
Miss Sunshine - "Oh no! I have something in my EYE!"
Me - "Something in your eye?? What is it?"
Miss Sunshine - "I don't know. It's a LADYBUG!"
Me (trying not to laugh) - "A ladybug?! How did a ladybug get in your eye?"
Miss Sunshine - "I don't know. It's a BABY ladybug."
Me (still trying to hold in the laughter) - "A baby ladybug, huh?"
Miss Sunshine - "Yeah. Don't worry, he's not scawy"
Me (little giggles are beginning to sneak out) - "Oh, well, I'm glad he's not scary then."
Miss Sunshine - "Yeah. Don't huwt him! Don't squish him!"
Me (giggling harder) - "No, we wouldn't want to hurt him. That would not be nice."
(I have reached the gym, and open the door to take her out)
Miss Sunshine - "Be caweful. He is scawed of you!"
Me (cracking up at this point) - "He's scared of me? Why is he scared of me?"
Miss Sunshine - "I don't know, but he is scawed. You must be scawy. Be nice, okay Mommy?"
Me (almost in tears at this point) - "Okay, I'll be nice. Let's put him down now so we can go to work, okay?"
Miss Sunshine - "Okay. I put him wight hewe, okay? You stay hewe baby ladybug. I see you later. But don't get in my eye again, okay ladybug?"
Sigh. That was the best day I've had in a long time.
