Laurel is such a girl sometimes. Now that she's gotten the hang of using toilet paper, she uses way too much and I've had to plunge the toilet twice in the last two days. It gave me flashbacks of college, only it smells much better here.

We rented Shrek 2 over the weekend. Laurel ignored it when we all sat down in the living room to watch it, but proceeded to watch it two or three times before we had to return it (two-day rental) in her room, where she glommed onto the songs. I didn't realize how much until she said "I like your sexy shirt, and I really like my sexy shoes!". I replied that she should try another word, like soft shirt and new shoes, which she interrupted with "I'm a model and I do my little turn on the catwalk". It took me a second to realize she was imitating Prince Charming singing "I'm Too Sexy".

Speaking of shoes, Laurel got new ones over the weekend. She fell for a cute pair of red Mary Janes, but we could only find them in larger and smaller sizes. We picked up a pair a size up for her to wear later and found a pair of brown t-straps with Winnie-the-Pooh on them for now.

While showering, I commented that her shower stuff -- kids' peach shower gel and cherry shampoo -- smells really good. She replied "I smell like fruit salad!". I wonder if there's a Febreze for people, because she smells really bad in the mornings with a wet Pull-Up.

Just some of the joys of having a girl!

I don't remember what my shoes looked like or what my soap and shampoo smelled like at four. I vaguely remember blue sneakers when my grandmother bought matching pairs for us.

I need to buy more shampoo for me and I'm absolutely boggled at the choices. I've used Pantene for years but bought baby shampoo last time because I usually shower with Laurel, but now she has her own bottle of shampoo so I can pick whatever catches my fancy.

I use Mane-N-Tail shampoo and conditioner. I should probably use something that helps maintain my red color but Mane-N-Tail is cheap and decent quality.

Asia is supposed to use shampoo for curly hair to help with her waves but she uses most anything. I'm always buying them fruity stuff. She has apple detangler and stuff to scrunch her hair that smells like grapes.

I get these kits for Asia that have foam body wash, lotion and lip gloss in melon, grape, orange or bubble gum scents at the local Osco drug and they are only $10 and come in colorful see-thru bags with key chains attached.

I had two pairs of shoes as a child. Play shoes and school shoes. The school shoes were navy blue and brown and had a bumblebee on the side. I think they were from Buster Brown.

I skip conditioner unless it's a two-in-one product because my hair gets oily fast enough on its own. I bought Suave Daily Clarifying shampoo this time and I hope it works out well -- it smells just like my memories of having my hair washed at the hairdresser's as a little burrito.

Laurel's not quite ready for lip gloss yet (she recently spread a tub the nerdsprout left on her bedroom wall), but I think she'd get a kick out of flavored lip balm. Ooh, the possibilities...

I had separate school and play shoes in early elementary school, but then I wore sneakers until high school, when I started wearing nice shoes again. Right now I only have two pairs of shoes here -- a pair of lug-sole Mary Janes and sandals. It's funny becoming an inch taller whenever I wear shoes. (:

Just wait! I collected lip gloss as a child (I had about 20 of them including 7 Up and Dr Pepper) I bought Asia Twinkie lip gloss not too long ago. It's wonderful. Like we've discussed before, Chaz likes chocolate flavored.

ONLY 2 pairs of shoes! There should be a law against that. I have about 30 pairs!

Laurel loves Carmex, but I only have a tub and she wants more every few minutes whenever I put it on her.

I own more pairs of shoes, they're just all in Colorado. I'm close to breaking down and buying something else because my Mary Janes are not good walking shoes and it's going to get a bit cold and wet for sandals soon.

Indeed. As soon as I get the computer in her bedroom set up, I'm setting her up with a selection of less frightening music on MP3.

She's really fond of Patience and Prudence lately.

Oh my... I need to go bleach my brain now.

Seriously, the smell cleans up fine with a wet wipe, I just have to buy another container of them. I think I'll move one of the suction shower baskets up to hold a roll of TP and a canister of wipes since there isn't any permanent storage in the bathroom above her reach.
