I took a red-eye flight to Miami on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. I’m here for just a quick trip – I’m participating in a conference – and will leave early, on Friday night, to fly directly to San Francisco. Jackie!’s annual brain tumor walk is Saturday morning and I wouldn’t miss it. It’s a lot of travel but I’m glad I will be able to make it all work.
Before I left on Tuesday night, Annie was in rare form. She insisted I brush her hair while I sang “Pwincess songs.” Since she normally screams and fights me the entire time I try to comb her hair, I jumped at the rare opportunity to brush her hair in a calm environment. She then noticed the dress I was wearing and asked to change into one. Then, she asked me to twirl with her. It was all very girlie and cute.
As I was leaving, I gave her a kiss and a hug and said, “Bye Annie, I love you.” “PWINCESS Annie,” she corrected me.
“Have fun playing dress up with Pwincess Annie,” I said to Mike. “Oh, I will,” he replied.
A few hours ago I got an email from Mike with the subject line, “Playing Dress Up With Pwincess Annie.” I was not expecting the pictures that were attached.
His email said: Annie found my laundry and brought this shirt out to me saying, ‘Annie wear it?! Puh-lease?’ How could I resist her wanting to look like her Daddy? We played “Office” and she fired lots of people. She’s brutal.
I laughed and wrote back: And the tie?
The tie completes the outfit Heather, come on.
Mike doesn’t realize that Annie is still being quite fashion-forward with her shirt dress. He got off easy in this round of dress up – it’s only a matter of time before she puh-leases him into wearing a dress himself.
The one of her at the computer is awesome. The look on her face!
She’s one awesome toddler.
She is completely adorable in that outfit!!! Ha Ha No Worries Heather…Mike IS going to get his one day and when he does, he’ll know what it’s REALLY like to be Embarassed (by the way…take pictures…lots & LOTS of pictures of him in his little sun dress – Ha)!!! (No Offence Mike).
Have you heard of the knot genie? They are amazing for curly haired pwincesses with tangly hair. No fighting. She can comb her hair herself with it. Our knot genie successfuly detangled a ginormous knot that was the result of a 7 day bedhead from a feverish bout of pneumonia. I know I sound like Ron Popeil, but the thing is amazing.
Oh my goodness. Now this is too darn cute!!
Taryn @ More Skees Please says:
She is so stinkin’ cute!
Love the one where she’s glaring at the computer!
reading for awhile, first time comment – BEST PHOTO EVER at the computer!
That girl is one of a kind!!
the pic of her at the computer is priceless!
you guys are AWESOME. Love this
Safe travels, Miss Heather!
I thought nothing could beat the sweet expression Annie has in the first picture, and then I scrolled down and saw her face in the computer shot. Thank her for the laugh for me, would you?
For a second there I thought Mike was going to have a princess dress or tiara on. I wasn’t expecting that but she sure is cute! Have a safe and fun trip.
Holy moly, could she be any cuter??? I think not.
Oh the cuteness!
I was wondering where Mike’s tutu was…
her facial expression in that last picture is priceless, so so cute.
That last photo of her on the computer. I mean its brilliant. I feel like its the anthem for all office workers. The pure scorn on her face. Love it. I think Mike needs to take that to work with him.
Very cute. Hooray for Mike for doing this for Annie. And she looks so serious and stern sitting at the computer. That must be the part where she fired everyone.
I was thinking the same exact thing.
That last photo of her on the computer is beyond great. I think you should do a series where she interprets famous business people. For instance, she should sit at the dining room table and tell someone “You’re fired”, ala Trump, or she could slick back her hair and tell Rigby, “Greed is good!”, Annie “Gecko” Spohr style.
Love the pic of her at the computer!
