Lipgloss And Cocoa Puffs

I am having the best time this week. I've been at Vicki's since Friday and hanging out with her and the kids has been so much fun, as usual. The best part though, is being with Mina. She is the most charming child I've ever been around. She will be five years old in two months but sometimes, I feel like I'm talking to a TWENTY five year old.

Her and I share a passion for makeup, hair accessories, diet coke and cocoa puffs. From the moment I walked through the door, she wanted lipgloss. Yesterday, we were at the mall and she comes running up behind me.

Mina: Miss Salena! Ah need some more lipgloss. (she has a southern accent - which adds to the charm)

Me: Why?

Mina: Because Ah don't have anymore on.

Me: Why?

Mina: It slipped off.

It slipped off? It slipped off?? What is it with this child? I had to laugh and then, I had to give her more lipgloss. I can't have her roaming the mall without being picture perfect.

Right now, we are sitting side by side. Me, on the desktop computer and her on my laptop. She's "writing" a letter to someone, even though most of it looks like this: msrepd dsjaec dweordaf jdpeiqew qwerpoiuy dgdsl waxcv.

It doesn't look like much, but I'm sure it says, "Miss Salena? Can Ah have some more lipgloss?"

she is so cute! Little kids with southern accents are adorable. The grown men who can't speak at NY clubs - HORRENDOUS!

She is pretty. I am sure she is going to be a heart stopper when she gets older. I think that southern accent is rather cool but, people have told me I have a cool accent. Wish I could hear it! LOL!
