After picking up Turtle at my mom's house last night, we headed to the drug store for a few essentials. One of those was body wash. Beyond anything else, how a body wash smells is the most important thing to me. I like light, crisp and usually citrus smells. This particular evening, I was also looking for cheap. After finding one that fulfilled most of my criteria, I offered it to Turtle who was in my PeanutShell sling (dude! What would I do without that thing?!?!). At first she of course tried to eat it because that's just how she rolls. So I pulled it away, put it up between our noses and tried to show her (in an overly exaggerated way... remember we're still smack in the middle of my local Walgreens) how to sniff the body wash. I really didn't expect much but after a few times she starts doing this panting breathing thing that she's been doing for a couple weeks now. She then looked up at me with these big doe eyes that said, "Did I do it right, Mama?" I swear I just about died of cuteness right there in the middle of Walgreens. I could tell she was trying her hardest to mimic me but just couldn't quite figure it out. She was thoroughly proud of herself though.
We did it a few more times and then I snuggled her even closer to me and gave her a kiss. I'm really not sure what I did before this amazing little bundle of awesome came into my life. Happy Friday everyone!
