Tonight’s special feature to entertain Isabella while she brushed her teeth was “Mommy singing songs and doing voices.” Her requests included the “Hi ho” song from Snow White, the “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” song, the “Hot dog dance” and the Good Night song (which is really Good Night Sweetheart by The Spaniels).
After all those, she asked me to talk like Pluto, then Mickey, then Goofy. Let me tell you, I do some mean Disney character impressions. I have Pluto, Mickey and Goofy down cold. Donald on the other hand is more difficult. CJ can do Donald but not me. Of course she requested him next. I told her that I can’t do Donald and she said, “Yes you can mommy. Just try it.”
So I did and failed miserably. I laughed and said, “I know, that wasn’t even close.”
She walked over to me, patted me on the butt and said, “That’s ok. Keep trying Mommy. You can do it. That’s a good brave girl.”
My heart grew 10 sizes in that moment.
Later that night….
As I was getting Isabella ready for bed, the phone rang. She said, “We have to be quiet when people are on the phone.” I agreed and told her that was correct.
She went on to say, “Today Daddy was on the phone and I wasn’t quiet. He told me to be quiet and I cried. Then I did crazy things.”
