Never a dull moment

There's really never a dull moment when you have a child.  Or at least not when you have our child.

Example:
The other day as I was just about to doze off for a much deserved nap, R comes to me a says "Come here. I have to show you something."
Now then, I have to admit, I wasn't real happy about having to get up. He led me to the kitchen only to see my car keys stuck in an electrical outlet.  Yep.  Avery had stuck one of my keys in the electrical out.

Parent of the year awards being handed out over at our house.

Every morning when Avery gets out of bed her first words are "I want to be a Pwincess." I'm not lying. Every. single. morning.

Avery practically refuses to wear pants. When we went on vacation, Avery wore the same denim skirt 3 times and the same dress twice.

Avery has an aversion to shirts that aren't pink.  Thankfully, it's not as strong as her aversion to pants.

Avery has her own opinion about what shoes to wear.  Tennis shoes?  Forget it.  The new pink Converse shoes I bought? Don't even try to put those on her feet.  Shoes must be "beautiful" and "sparkly". 

Avery get sweaty in the car and must have every vent pointed at her full blast.
So, you see, there's never a dull moment at our house.
I'm not sure why I was surprised when I went to check on Avery this evening after a few moments of silence to find this:

And although you can see R in the background of that last picture, that was AFTER we found that she had climbed up on the bathroom vanity and was gazing at herself in her "princess" dress.

I know why she was up there.  Most mornings that we dress Avery at home (on the weekdays she gets dressed at my cousins house) R takes Avery into the bathroom, sets her on the vanity, and they gaze upon her beauty. He tells her how pretty she is and she basically agrees. When she puts on a princess dress, she will sway her hips back and forth, smooth down the front and say "I a pwincess mommy." Normally R will do their routine and go to the bathroom and let Avery look at herself. 

Not tonight. There was no time for gazing on Avery's beauty.  Dinner needed to be cooked.  This momma was hungry!

Not a problem for Avery. She took matters into her own hands.

I'm extremely slightly concerned for what this may mean for the future.  Help me!

More adventures to come!

LOL! She is a doll!

That's cute, but she's going to be upset when she finds out how hard it is to get your foot in the door on the princess business. Just not a big market for that anymore.
