Last winter I recommended that instead of coming up for Amelle's actual birthday in Feb, maybe they could celebrate her half birthday in August and have a really special day together. So all summer long they've been planning this day (today). Manicures, Pedicures, shopping, lunch, beach, sleepover, birthday cake...the whole nine.
Yesterday when I informed Amelle that Grandma was going to be picking her up for her half birthday, her eyes got big and she had a look of pure terror in her eyes. She began to tear and cry, "I don't want to get a shot!". She calmed down after I assured her that she didn't have to get a physical or a shot on her half birthday.
So today I called my mom to check in and see how their day was going. My mom informed me that she took her for manicures and pedicures (she said there was a whole lot of puckering going on) and shopping, the sky was the limit. The first thing that Amelle wanted on their shopping expedition was a tub of vaseline.
This is Amelle.
