Yo Mom, Where Are My Peeps?

Does that sentence make you giggle as much as it does me? Probably not! But then, I make myself laugh....a lot! When Claire got up from her nap yesterday, I told her I'd take her outside to play before dinner. She was very happy, because she loves to be outside. Always has, ever since we got her. When she would wake up in the hotels in China, she wanted to get dressed and LEAVE. Everyday. All the time. She never wanted to stay in the room, and she was happiest walking around outside. Of course, we were the ones doing the walking, but that didn't seem to bother her in the slightest! She would let Paul carry her ('cause if you remember, I was not her favorite person back then), and she would swing her arm, as if she was really going places!! Anyway, back to the point. Shoes on, jacket on, we walked out the door and she stood on the stoop and looked around, kind of disappointed.

Me: "What's wrong, honey?"
Claire: "Where are all the people?"
Me: "What people, honey?"
Claire: "Where are MY PEOPLE?"

She was referring to the fact that her brother's, sister and the neighborhood children were not in our yard today as they are sometimes. They were all down the street in a friend's yard. Well, that did not go over well.

Claire: "I want MY people!"

Needless to say, since she is too young to go trotting off down the street to another house, I called the other's home. The other kids came with them and all was right with the world again....for now! This kid cracks me up!

Surrounded by her peeps!

Playing some hoops with her peeps!

Yes, she's already spied a hoop that is just her size at Wally World....and she'll probably get it!

Oh happy day!

Well, she can't be expected to play without an audience, now can she? Too cute! I love her antics.
