The niece and I went to The Land Of The Mouse yesterday. We spent many hours waiting in line to ride different rides and got to see the whole theme park lit up with Christmas lights. She proclaimed to me a few times, "This is the best day of my life!" On the way home from the park, we decided that we would go get snack foods and play cards while watching the best movie ever (Nacho Libre) and just stay up til we passed out. We also stopped and got a couple of big fireworks to set off. Sylvie(8) was beside herself with excitement. After her bath she told me that she was going to put her party pajamas on. And what goes best with party pajamas? The pirate gear that you bought at The Happiest Place On Earth.
She has a whole crazy little song and dance routine that she made up. She tosses her hat off at the end. It tickles me that out of all of the princess crap that she could have purchased at the park that she chose pirate stuff.
Oh! She gave me proof day before yesterday that freaking crazy runs in my family. When we were in line waiting to get on rides, I noticed that she kept digging at her ears. She'd put some new earrings in the day before and I thought maybe they were bugging her. I finally ask her if she has an earache or what. She explains to me that she is cramming the hair on her head into her ears as far as it will go because it feels nice and scratchy when you pull the hair out slowly. Oooookay...Little nutball.
