Hanging with Harper

Posted on | January 31, 2012 | 102 Comments

oh my word.

yesterday i kept H home from preschool because she was sick the majority of the weekend and her nose has remained a faucet. but we got dressed, she picked out some shoes although we were going nowhere, and asked me to put her hair up on top like mommys. we cooped up in her room and read books, did puzzles, and played store (where she used her typewriter as a register and demanded i pay her for things). every so often she would say “mommy, take a picture of me doing this” which is completely out of the norm for her. i brought up snacks and we played the morning away. sorry for the photo overload, but she was just too much.

sweater and striped tank underneath: h&m //jeggings and flats: target

    YOU SHUT RIGHT UP 

    Camille makes me do her hair like this too. “Do a bump like yours.” Is it sad that if I have my hair down she thinks I look like a martian bc I so often have my hair up? Whatever I’m a baller. 

    That last one makes me want to throw my laptop out a window on account of the adorable.

    Oof. So much cuteness. It’s just gross actually. Over the top. Too much.

    I can’t hang. 

    I love this.

    I love that she is just as quirky as you, yours comes out in your writing, hers in posing.

    She is your mini me! So insanely cute.  Side-note: my mama heart started racing when i noticed the un-clamped window blind pulls– maybe the next item of decor for harper’s room is a clamp (glitter-covered?) to keep those dangerous cords high up and out of harper’s reach.

    [Reply]

    Mandy Reply:

    ah, you’re right! See we usually have the blinds down with them cracked so that cord is waaaay up high by the top of the window. With hopefully nicer weather coming, and more opportunities for wide open windows, i will do that. thanks Meghan!

    This is so great. My little V has the same shoes and she gets compliments everywhere she goes. I think Target would really benefit from offering “mommy and daughter” matching pairs:)

    On another note, have you seen this blog yet? My friend’s friend does them and I feel like this humor is right up your alley. They were featured on Huff Post today. T-Rex trying to rock a cardigan is possibly my fave.
