Wacky Wednesday – Those Eyes

Breast Cancer isn’t really very funny. Parenthood, however, I will admit can be really really funny. And I do try to laugh at myself as often as possible. When you combine That Girl, That Guy, and My Girls, you get a pretty Wacky life. When I was a child, probably when I was learning to read, one of my favorite books was “Wacky Wednesday” by Dr. Seuss. Since we constantly talk about how wacky my oldest is, my Wednesday posts will be sharing what I think are pretty Wacky stories, quotes, and silliness from our lives. Enjoy!

Every one has that thing that can get them out of trouble or get them what they are wanting. We all have that friend who can talk their way into or out of anything. Or the one who can charm their way into  great opportunity. For my girls, it is their eyes and smiles. That Baby is just at that phase where you ask her to smile for a picture and bam, out comes the most adorably un-adorable smile. You can’t help but love it because she is truly happy she knows what you are saying and so eager to cooperate. Oh, that smile! 

That Baby sure has the mischievous thing down already. She looks straight at us and smiles this goofy grin and then the eyes go all squinty and you just KNOW she knows better. That Guy already has said that look is going to be with us for years and she is going to keep using it to get out of trouble. Just this week she has started to come up and tickle other people’s feet. Of course you can guess that she does her hilarious “Gotta Love Me” grin and crinkly eyes once she has you giggling. I seriously have never seen a baby come up and tickle people’s feet unprompted. Next thing you know she will be raspberry-ing strangers in Target! Oh please, like we go anywhere else!

That Little Girl has always been expressive with her eyes as well. There is an adorable crescent shape they turn into when she is truly happy or giggling. She has always been really interested in our eyes as well. Hopefully we didn’t scare her too much when we have gone over the requisite “Eyes in the back of my head” type deal. She has asked when her’s will be coming in, and obviously the answer is when she has her first baby. And she knows that Grandma’s really can see the most behind them with their eyes back there. And we apparently use the expression “I’ve got an eye on you” fairly often. Sometimes I just do the thing where I use my index and middle finger in the shape of a V and point at my eyes and then at her. Recently, when trying to tell me that she in fact had her eyes on me, I can’t even remember why, she tried to mimic the gesture. It went pretty adorably wrong. She started out good with the serious face, then raised her right hand and somehow ended up in sort of a salute with her thumb and index fingers pointing down and kind of playing peek-a-boo with a salute. We all got a giggle out of that one!
