Remember the other day when I whined about the Doggy and MooMoo situation? Yeah. So Little L grows more attached to MooMoo every day, but she still covets her sister’s Doggy and screams for it every time we get into the car.
Today because the traffic was unusually heavy Little L and I dropped off C at preschool before heading to daycare; the opposite of our usual morning routine. So for the first time pretty much ever Little L found herself in the car at the same time as the Doggy, but without her sister.
She instantly assessed the situation and lunged for the raggedy mutt. I figured there was no real reason to deny her a brief fling with him while her sister was away so I handed over the coveted item. She grabbed at it with glee and as soon as I had snapped her in she lovingly wedged him between her ear and shoulder, just like her big sister does every time she gets in the car.
I glanced at her in the rear view mirror and smiled at the serious look on her face as she cuddled her sister’s lovey. And then I laughed as she pulled him away from her neck and looked at him in disgust before throwing him on the ground. Her look of pure disappointment was priceless. She looked positively offended that the experience hadn’t lived up to her expectations.
“I know baby, he smells pretty bad, hun?” But she didn’t answer, just plugged her pacifier into her mouth and looked out the window.
