One of our favorite books here at our home is Pinkalicious, a story of a girl who eats too many pink cupcakes and turns pink. Swee’Pea, especially, loves this story as her favorite color is pink and I think it’s her secret dream to one day be pink.
In one part of the story, the little girl is at the park when a bee lands on her nose, thinking she’s a flower. The girl responds by saying, “Buzz off! I’m not a flower!”
Yesterday, I came downstairs to find Beautiful Wife, Swee’Pea and TheMonk looking intently at something on our sliding glass door that leads to our backyard. Evidently, they were checking out a mosquito that had landed on the screen. Beautiful Wife explained to them that when a mosquito lands on your arm, you swipe it off your arm with your hand before it leaves a mark.
As I approached them, Beautiful Wife asked Swee’pea to tell me what you do when a mosquito lands on your arm.
Swee’Pea turned to me, took her hand and dramatically swept her arm and shouted out, with a laugh I want to remember forever, “BUZZ OFF! I’M NOT A FLOWER!!”
