Miss Pickles' Princess Diaries

It's me, Pickles. 
Mom and I went on another adventure today.


When I woke up from my nap she asked me if I wanted to go take pictures.
Uh, duh. When do I not want to go take pictures? 
I was so excited when she got out my Princes "Be-w" dress, I couldn't get it on fast enough!


A tea party with Mrs. Potts and Chip. AND Goldfish "cackers"? NO WAY!


Um, "mama".... there seems to be a problem here.

You see, I can't continue this photo shoot without some "cackers" in both "cuppas".

Ah. That's better.



"Ah dun" with my tea party. Let's explore!

You know, this crown is starting to give me some problems. 

Being a princess isn't always easy, I guess.





Ah, take it OFF!

There. that's better.



Alright, mama. Let's play that really cool game where I run away from you and you run in front and catch me. That's my favorite game.


I'm ready to put my crown back "ohn".


There we go, that's better. Now I can rule the lands.


C'mon mama.... let's go rule the lands...

Building Bonds

Last night I made a new rule: If Z wakes up first, he goes downstairs and does school work quietly. If Bray wakes up first, he comes into my room.
This whole time I thought it was Z waking Bray up. 
Guess who crawled into my bed this morning while his brother lay snoring in their room? 
Bray.


These two rarely get any time together, but one thing they are always sure to fight bond over are mega blocks. Bray builds airplanes, Zo destroys the airplanes.
 It's so fun. 




This morning was different though. They built together, they built separately.
But most importantly, they built entirely argument free. 


I was so proud of Bray for being a big brother and holding back his frustration when his sister (inevitably) broke his (10th) beloved airplane. 


 Instead of getting angry he just built it back up again.

Miss Pickles' Diary

Hello, my name is Zoey.
 Brother calls me Pickles.


He says, "Everyone loves pickles."
 I'm OK with that. I love pickles too.


Today, I wasn't comfy at naptime so I couldn't get to sleep. 
I didn't have my favorite blankies -- they were in the wash
I lost my favorite binky under the couch 
and my teeth hurt.


Mommy suggested that we get dressed and go bye-bye. 
I love to go bye-bye and I love to get dressed.
I picked out my favorite necklace and we were on our way.


Well, almost on our way.
 I had to remind Mommy that I needed an "appa" (which really means orange)
She gets so confused by that. 
"Orange," she says
"Appa?" I say.
Like, seriously lady, when will you get it.


We were walking, I had my hands full and I like to live on the edge.
 I just bit right into that appa.


After mom peeled my appa we walked some more and I ate my cackers.


I really wanted to go see those flowers but Mom said those belong to someone else...

So we found these pretty purple flowers instead.
Hello pretty flower.


My food fell on the ground.
 No big deal, I'm not afraid of dirt.
I ate that food anyway.


"Yuck"
Dirt.


We explored some more.
 I don't like to stay in one place for too long. 
Gotta keep Mommy on her toes, you know? 


After a bit of walking I found this awesome, random pile of dirt.

 What better way to end my adventure than right there
In the dirt.
