We had a
great time catching up, watching our kiddos play together, eating good food and hanging out with Kara's family. It was perfect timing for Kara's trip, as I was needing to get off the farm for a
few days, and have some best friend therapy and healing time. My best friend is wise and compassionate and it was good for me to see her after our last few weeks of crapola.
While we were in the mall a strange thing happened. Ila was walking along side of me in her SUPER cute and VERY feminine outfit (the one in the picture to the right) and a lady stopped us. "Is that a girl?" she asked. "Umm, yeah" I said with a very "of course she is" tone. "Oh, that baby needs a wig!" she replied.
"Ummm, thanks" I said with raised eyebrows. I very successfully communicated that what she had just said was not appreciated. She went on to say that s
he has a bald niece that she says the same thing about as we just walked away from her. Can I just say "WHAT THE CRAP?!" I mean, Ila has been called a boy, and bald before, but no one has ever told me that he needs a wig! Who would say something like that about a beautiful toddler? People are CRAZY I tell you,
CRAZY! There is such thing as an internal filter. And some people need to access their filters!
The best part is that when I told Trent the story he was appalled, but right after he said
"what?!" (like he couldn't believe what on earth that woman was thinking to sa
y something like
that) he said "I wonder how much baby wigs are?" Yeah, my husband is hilarious.
Now we are back on the ranch and my Dad is coming for a few days. He hasn't seen Ila since Christmas and he can't take it any longer. I'm looking forward to seeing him and I KNOW Ila will have a great time being spoiled by her Grandpa!
I'll leave you with a few pictures of 2 of the cutest babies in the world. Ila and Joshua!
