So sunshine has been suddenly intrigued and consumed with the entire concept that you put things in a mailbox and they end up in someone else's house. It all started this week as I got a catalog that came from a store that we go to all the time. She became fascinated with mail. She and Bug have been playing "post office" all week.
So I saw her coloring a picture out of a coloring book, then rip out the page. I didn't say anything, I just watched all nonchalant like. She then proceeded to grab a toy out of her toy box. This time it was a book. She then licked the picture she just colored.(EWWW) and wrapped it all up in a slobbery wet paper ball. She then went and put on her boots and coat and went out front. I followed with the camera in hand.
Sure enough she went and put it in the mailbox and dropped off her mail. When she came back in, like nothing had happened....I asked her,
Me- "what did you just do?"
Sunshine-"had to mail something"
Sunshine-"Girl mail...for girls only."
Me-"alrighty....I'm a girl can I go and get it?"
Sunshine-"Don't be silly, you're not a girl, you're a mom!!"
Me-"But moms are girls too"
Sunshine-" Alright now you're just freaking me out."
So.....fast foreword....2 hours. I wanted to get out there and get that stuff out of the mailbox before it really starts to rain and those books are destroyed. So I try to sneak out there and she chases me out yelling the whole time "NOOOOOOO!!!!! Now my girls aren't going to get their mail!!!!" I explained to her that we were just pretending and now we were done and the rain would ruin the mail. That explanation didn't really fly with her.
She is still pouting. needless to say, she was not amused.
