I tried to let her down easy, "No, not right now. We've got to run some errands."
"I go see mamaw and papaw!! I go see mamaw and papaw!! "Then she thought for a second, "Can we run in Target?"...verbatim.
Then as we were driving around, I explained, "Okay, we're off to Toys R Us to make a return."
She replied, "Yaaaay! Lets get some toys for Samuel and my baby sisssster."
This warmed my heart.
And a few silly picts from this evening...meet Isabelle "Charlie Chaplan" Kirk
She scooted herself around in her babydoll stroller all over the house.And I kept catching her "sleeping" in her antique baby doll crib given to her by Great Grandma Kirk (which she knows she isn't allowed to play in!)
But she redeemed herself because she was a very, very big helper when it was time to clean up for the night, and she even put everything in its proper place - a very smart 2 year old!
