Oops!

One of the biggest issues in our house is the touching of "my" stuff. Kylee is VERY concerned if Laynee even looks toward her things, let alone touches them and if she is playing with them...Oh Lordy! The world is definitely ending! Now, I understand that there are certain things that a child has that are more special than other things. I respect that Kylee has a few of these items. One is Felicity, her American Girl. There is NO WAY I would let Laynee even come near that doll when Kylee is not around and I stand behind Kylee's decision not to let Laynee as much as touch Felicity when she IS around. However, I think it is just ridiculous for me to spend my days fighting with Laynee over what she can and cannot touch when it is just a toy. So, I have decided that when Kylee is at school, Laynee may play with any of the toys (except of course the "special" ones) and when they are her sister's toys, I take care to see that she is more careful with them. Oh...I want to mention that even though Kylee believes that Laynee should not be allowed to even look at her toys without permission, it is absolutely okay for Kylee to play with any of Delaynee's toys whenever she wants. This is something we discuss frequently. Well, yesterday, Laynee had Kylee's pink, straw, cowGIRL hat and it ended up on the floor. I was busy and hadn't bothered to pick it up just that second because, honestly, it was just going to be right back there in 60 seconds anyway. Laynee came walking by in all of her grace, stumbled and fell right on the poor hat! I had to chuckle because as anyone who is familiar with straw hats knows, it was now very squished! I couldn't resist a picture of this hat that has been with Kylee for over 3 years now and has endured every insult from markers to the swimming pool and now, a baby butt! I'd say it actually doesn't look too bad considering, but maybe I need to be a LITTLE more vigilant...


Oops!

OH MY GOSH! I think the hat actually looks better now. It's a TRUE cowgirl hat in my opinion! I think it's priceless that Ky didn't even realize that anything had happened LOL I LOVE your girls!!

Aren't they great?! I haven't bothered to mention to Kylee that her hat has been squashed, either. I really want to get a picture of Laynee's newest face expression...it is absolutely priceless!
