Ladybug Girl!

p5050282ladybuggirl.jpgSylvia turns three today.

One birthday gift she received a few days ago was Ladybug Girl, by Jacky Davis and David Soman. The friends who gave it to her were inspired by a ladybug shirt Sylvia likes to wear. It’s a wonderful book, and Sylvia adores it—so much so that between us Jan and I have read it to her (by request) at least a dozen times so far. Seriously.

Yesterday morning when she woke up she decided she wanted to be Ladybug Girl for the day. She chose all of her own clothes: ladybug shirt, polka-dot legwarmers, orange shorts, ladybug ponytail holders. I substituted a playsilk for the “ladybug wings” (and she’s pretty happy with that).

Here she is, shouting “Ladybug Girl!”

Happy birthday, Sylvia!

    That’s awesome. I love the “take on the world” pose of triumph. We should all feel that good at some point during the day.

    Thanks for the comment! One of the friends that came over to play Heroscape does have Descent, so I’m sure my fiance will be playing it someday.

    OH! I love ladybugs as well — we call them the “Warrior Princess” in our house because of how well they protect the garden.

    P.S. I have one tattoo’ed on the big toe of my right foot. :)
