Since the last post only had a picture of poor 'ole Quasimoto, I figured I better get some cute ones of my girl up fast! (* Speaking of Q, Just a side note- since I didn't allow comments on my last post, I've had a few people email me to tell me that I don't look like Quasimoto and that in fact, if I wanted to peddle chicken wings in hot pants and panty-hose I could. Yall are sweet, but I promise I don't think I'm quite as bad as Quasimoto (bless his heart). I was just trying to prove a point, and certainly wasn't "fishing for compliments" to hear that I was 'cute'! That's why sometimes on posts like that one, I disable my comments. But again, yall are sweet to want to reassure me.) :)
We recently took TWO trips to see the Easter Bunny at the mall.
Let me just say that the bunny in these pictures is not the pretty part. Said bunny had to be the scariest one the mall has ever had. He was an orangy-brown color, had an awful navy blue vest and bowtie on and was so stick thin, he looked malnourished. If I was a kid, I'd have probably been scared he was so hungry he might eat me. You know what they say about the "apple and the tree", because my little apple was bit scared of The Bunny.
AB was fine with the Bunny as long as someone was holding her. She was smiling and waving and saying, "heeeeeeyyy!", but the minute we put her down on his lap, she got the look. Her arms went straight out reaching for someone to safely grab her up! We (me with our camera) and the girl at the mall snapped a few pictures as fast as we could. Here's the best pictures I got (it's the classic AB "I'm fixing to cry, but it looks like I am smiling, kind of-pose":
The mall-girl didn't get any that had AB's eyes open or that didn't have her arms stretched straight out, in the "you better pick me up right now" position. I figured we could try it again another day, since The Bunny would be at the mall for another couple weeks.
A week passed and last Sunday afternoon, we ventured up to the mall to try it again. The girl remembered us. She looked at DW and said, "Yall back to try it again?" I'm sure she only remembered us because of how cute our girl is, and NOT because we are THOSE people with THAT kid, RIGHT???? Right. Surely.
We were standing in line and I just knew that it was the day we'd get to buy our overpriced, poorly printed picture to add to our collection, because AB was all smiles. This time, she was
even blowing The Bunny kisses. I was sure she'd remembered him and remembered that he hadn't bitten her with his big bucked-bunny teeth last time, so she was safe this time. We were on deck. As the family in front of us moved on to view their pictures, DW eased up close to The Bunny. AB was loving it. She was petting the Bunny, and "talking" to him, but the minute DW tried to sit her in his lap, she turned it on. The nose crinkled, the lip pooched out and the hands went straight back up toward her Daddy. Me and Mall-Girl snapped as quick as our cameras would snap, and here's what we bought. Yes, friends, this is our $17.00, 2010 Easter picture. I, myself, think it's hilarious and that one day she'll look back and this picture and have a good laugh.
The kicker, is that the day before we took her (the first time) to see The Bunny, was opening day for Spring Gobbler hunting season. DW killed a big one and AB wasn't the least bit scared of it. She even TOUCHED it. Ewwww, I know...
And lest anyone get the idea that this is such a "pretty" post, let me keep it real and "transparent". My girl has a turkey feather in her hair in this picture. And it was taken right after she'd just spit. Yep, she's in a camouflage jacket and she spit. A "trick" she's picked up from her Pop, who thinks its hilarious. Me? Not.so.much.Looking like Quasimoto is the least of my worries! Ha....
So have yall been to see The Bunny yet this year and were your kids scared of him?????
