Fast forward three years and we had another beautiful baby girl. I was so happy to see this sweet thing. Her older brother had been born a few years before so I was back to having a little boy race around the house with his trains and trucks. Now, I must add that I love my boys. I love watching them play with their toys. Its just that.....sometimes it is nice to have a little quite play and I had found that my daughter was much better at this than my sons.
That theory lasted about as long as it took our youngest daughter to walk. She didn't want girlie things. She liked the boys trucks and trains. She wanted to run around outside and in and make messes and lots of noise.
Her older sister was not amused. She didn't need another shaggy haired varmint running around her house. She needed a sibling with some class and sophistication.
It was not to be.
This four year old loves all things dirty.
Where we live in California it gets very hot in the summer. I bought the dog a little pool of her very own so she could lay in it to keep cool and also have a large supply of water to drink at all times.
Paige loves this pool. She loves to put mud in it and then swim around in all its mucky yuckyness to the disgust of the rest of the family.
Doesn't this look fun?
Do you think she needs a bath?
After frolicking around in the muddy sludge until she has had enough she always immediately announces that she needs a bath.
This is a huge relief to her older sister.
She may like to get muddy and gross looking like the boys. But the girl. She still likes to get clean and pretty when its all over with.
Here they are playing dress up together after one such clean up. Sorry for the blurry picture. They were racing downstairs for the fashion show.
She even has a dramatic flare.
