i need a cape


The other day I needed to go grocery shopping. Paige was at school so it was just Laine and I. I haven't gone for long time and since I hate grocery shopping, I had been putting it off. We needed a lot of food, staple type for the pantry and I knew it was going to take a long time. I paid for the "watch a DVD shopping cart" so I could keep Laine entertained. This week she got to watch Bob the Builder. Seriously.....where were those carts when i was a kid?

Anyway, as I was walking the aisles she would {in the truest Dukes of Hazzard move slide over the hood of the car} and yell "hay mom we bananas", "hay mom we apples", and "mom we need chips". When we got to the check out lane she does the Dukes move again and says "Mom, I gotta tell you something, listen to me momma, we NEED chocolate. Please momma". It was before lunch and I wanted her to eat a healthy lunch so I told her I have a special treat at home if she has a good lunch. She was disappointed but agrees to the compromise. When we get home she eats lunch and asks for a treat. I have a small piece of dove Chocolate so I get it out and her eyes light up. This girl looooooves chocolate. In her sweetest voice she tells me... "Momma you are my SuperHero". Apparently when you are 3 all it takes to be a superhero is a Hershey Bar. At least in Laine's world....
P.S. If you like the little cape pictured you can go to Pleated Poppy to find it. She has the most awesome fabrics and make the most adorable things for children and grown ups too.
