A Typical Saturday Morning with Lexie Lou

So this is what a typical Saturday morning with little Miss Lexie Lou is like. After she wakes me up with a "WAKE UP MOMMY" yelled very loudly in my face followed by a tickle under my chin or a wet kiss somewhere near my mouth and a 29 lb body thrown across my stomach if I haven't actually gotten out of bed. Then we make our way into the bathroom to go potty on the big girl potty, get a princess sticker for our efforts followed by an "M" (aka M&M) and wash our hands and then our famous "pat pat pat front and back" drying technique of course. Next we are off to feed Kit and Boodle (AKA Kaboodle) which she always gives Kit his food but she fills Kaboodles bowl up so that it is fair. Then we let them go out to do their duty and Lexie's not sure why they can't have princess stickers as well. Finally its a breakfast of champions - oatmeal, fruit & juice.
Now for the fun part. She heads over to the family room which is also her play area where she proceeds to check out ever toy - I guess to make sure they are still there as well as to destroy the room in under 5 minutes while she watches Mickey Mouse Clubhouse or Darby, Pooh & Tigger Too or whoever Disney is pushing this week. They are actually pretty educational and I love that Disney has no commercials on until noon. Yeah Disney. While she's watching the show Lexie is also playing with various toys but most importantly trying on different outfits or looks or characters, I'm not sure which. Here's last Saturdays looks.

First it's the Ladybug wings - a favorite for anytime of the day right now.

Next we add the sweet little pink hat...

But no that's not right. So she goes for her all time favorite, the green top hat. It's getting a little small but no matter, she'll just jam it on. Now there's a look.

After a short while of that she decides it's time to cook so we must put on the yellow apron and then for some reason she decides to stand on her Zebra from Kazakhstan which she still loves to ride or just sit on or in this case stand on while she watches from there. Maybe she can see better? Who knows.

So now she decides to change the whole look. She wants her top changed so she can ware it with her favorite princess dress...purple Cinderella (now if I remember the movie correctly Cinderealla never wears purple but hey who am I to argue with a HAPPY 2 1/2 year old?)

Nope that's not quite right....wait... she needs a hat and she even picks one that matches the dress. I'm so proud! And of course it's the perfect outfit to play doctor in and check everyones heart beats in, right?

No, let's go for a whole new look instead. Something in....yellow that's it! So on goes her Snow White skirt and yellow bunny ears (I swear I just sit back and watch and take pictures of course. I didn't suggest what might go together. This is all her doing, really!)

Now this... I'm just not sure about. Was she trying for the old man pulling his pants up to his armpits look or to make this into a mini dress? I guess I'll never know.

But wait. She remembers the tutu she got from her cousins for Christmas (we are supposed to decorate it with ribbons, bows and jewels but we haven't had time to do it yet) so we have to give it a try as well.

Cute! Mommy likes it and she seems to as well since she wears it to do her puzzle (please note that she is putting the right shape in the right whole) while she watches the show. Oh my little multi-tasker.

Then they do a dance on the show so she does to.

I'm so glad to know that my money isn't being wasted for her tap and ballet classes on Wed mornings. Now she's pretty tired out so she takes that off puts on her other princes tutu skirt over her comfy sweats and lays down for a little break. We've now been up less than 2 hours!

Oh it's a hard life for my little Miss Lexie Lou on a typical Saturday morning!
