So, my brother isn’t the only one in my family that’s hilarious. My three-year-old niece, Faryn is also pretty damn funny. Let’s recap some of the funny stuff she’s done lately shall we? But before we start, here she is:
Up first is what I can only describe as her haircutting incident. I know, it’s not all that uncommon for a child to cut their own hair. That’s true. But it’s what they do with their hair that makes it interesting. Faryn decided to cut her hair and create hairy armpits with the parts she cut off. How did she do this? Well, she used her mom’s (my sister) face cream as a glue to stick the hair she cut to her armpits. Did you hear me? A 3-year-old with hairy armpits!
Then, we’re trying really hard to break the pacifier habit. To do that, my sister told her that she needs to put all her pacifiers under her pillow at night so the pacifier fairy can come and take them away. In their place, the fairy will leave a great present. So, each night Faryn leaves one or two of the pacifiers she doesn’t like under her pillow and hopes that the fairy will come and be tricked by the one or two that are there. Recently, she mentioned to my sister that although she’d been leaving the pacifiers under there, the fairy hasn’t come yet. She was reminded of the need to put all of them under there, not just the ones she dislikes.
And, her birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks. I asked her what she wants her birthday cake to look like. She said that she wants a Belle cake (from Beauty and the Beast) with tiny Beast candles. Hey, at least she knows what she wants. The problem is that it doesn’t seem many other little girls want the Beast incorporated on their cake in any way, because we can’t seem to find them. Any suggestions?
And lastly, we grew up in the lovely town of McAllen, Texas. Most of you have probably never heard of it. It’s a border town about 10 minutes from Mexico. We don’t often talk too fondly of the town, but I wouldn’t say that we talk about it often. Well, recently my sister was washing some clothes, and Faryn suggested that she include a particular towel because it “stunk like McAllen.” I can guarantee that we’ve never said that. It was all her. I love that girl.
