silliness with the kiddies
i really do just love hanging out with my girls. they're hilarious, both individually and together.
we're trying to teach the bean how to blow kisses, with slightly...well, off results. when i put her hand to her mouth and show her how to make the gesture, she usually ends up doing this instead:

she is SO my kid.
my cousin's daughter is almost exactly the same age as the bean - she's literally a week older. both kids turned 16 this year, and ...
