Petit-Lavender Chick

Friday, March 21st, 2008

Just a quick check in to say hello. I wanted to share this quick story with y'all. It looks like we have another Lavender Chick in the making (I'm so proud!).

Do you remember Miss High Falutin'? She's my 5 year old niece that cracks me up. Both of my nieces crack me up actually, but the young one is a free spirit and truly uninhibited. My 8-year old niece, J-Bean, is much more on guard. Well, she has to be actually... She never knows what her little sister will say or do next. Sort of like last week when they were in the car driving slowly through a parking lot. She spotted a young boy on the sidewalk and quickly rolled down the window and yelled out at him, "Hey boy with the curly hair, you're goin' down!" And of course using her thumb to motion downward as she said, goin down! Who knows why or where she ever even heard the term, goin' down...

Anyway, my sister and nieces are in West Texas right now visiting family for Easter. Because they're in West Texas, that means they're all dried up like a bunch of fall leaves. As y'all already know, that's the whole reason I was inspired to create my own darn lotion - I was tired of that all dried up feeling.

So back to Miss High Falutin' - my sister needed to slather some lotion on her because she was getting that itchy, flaky, reptile look we all get when there. My sister grabbed some contraband - I mean, inferior no name lotion that she found lying around the house. As she started putting it on Miss High Falutin, she said, "Mommy, you know I ONLY use lavender!"
