Thursdaily with the most amazing box ever...

(But I'm not going to tell you about the box until tomorrow, because I want to surprise the husband with the contents and he reads this. I will tease a little and say that I told Guppy it was mine, and she howled, "GIMMEE BACK!")

Met with one of the contractors today, hauled lilacs home and planted them. Have otherwise been dancing attendance on a small monstery monster. She remains largely bribe-able with watermelon, and I can still tuck her under an arm, so that's a plus. "I'm too HEFFY," she says when I pick her up, with an admirable echo of my own 'oof!'

Have a picture of the Ninja Batman Porch Dance:

For contrast, we also have Sad Baby in Pink Blanket:

She woke up on the wrong side of the crib after her Very Long nap yesterday and just cried and cried and wanted nothing but hugs and reassurance, in a very un-Guppy-like way. It took about 30 minutes to get her calmed down to just sad, and we cuddled for a while in my chair. "Do you want my happy hat?" I asked her.

"No," she replied with a tragic sigh. "I'm wearing pink blanket."

She cheered up a bit after food, and we watched The Little Mermaid.

Which... hmph. I loved that movie, though I was considerably older than Guppy when I saw it. I remember that a little girl I babysat twice a week while I was in middle school had the video (and very few other choices), and I would watch it nearly every night after she went to bed. I could still sing most of the songs. But as role models go? Goodness. She certainly was a snotty, entitled, self-important little crybaby, wasn't she? Still, it's a pretty movie, and now Guppy has some context for the Ariel pull-ups she likes best.

In better news from yesterday, I got to catch up with a local friend, and that was lovely. I also got this and am so happy I snagged it. It is even more gorgeous in person.

Alright, naptime is a-wasting. Back to the coloring book saltmines for me! I would like to launch the Kickstarter next week, so hold onto your britches!
