"If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." — E.B. White

blackmailing the male

It must be said;
My kids play very well together.
And not so well.
I can't decide which situation this was.
Sarah n Jack were quietly playing dress up in her room.
I'm never sure what to expect when they come down...

Some days he chooses to be a fireman
or a cowboy...
 Maybe a duck or even, lordy,
 french fries (a premade costume someone gave us)!

Some days he plays Mary to her Laura Ingalls.
Lately even baby Carrie.
He's a really good sport
(or desperate for more friends/neighbors?)

Today he was a flower fairy with her.

he danced
and skipped

and twirled.

Then his ride came and it was time to go to work. 

Going just 'round the corner to make hay.
Talk about not being caught with dirty undies...
Please dear Farmer, drive very carefully lest I have to explain this to the paramedics!
Or a prom date later when his big sister chooses to blackmail him.

ps- Even Chase enjoys dress up!

Hope your week is magical!
(and not hurricaned!)

LOL! Brings back memories. My son is also the youngest, and I have MANY pictures of him in a tutu. I think when their sister is their only other playmate, they just join right in. Girls have a harder time with this. Be glad he's so FLEXIBLE! LOL!

Ain't country life grand?

I remember doing similar things when I was growing up... but one should remember when dressed in 'girl' clothes, ALWAYS COMPLY AND PLAY ALONG,
...lest you be locked out on the front porch of your home in the suburbs!

bwa-hahahaha! =D

Just toooooooo funny! Just recently my daughter age 20, our son age 22, and his girlfriend set him down and put mascara on his long eyelashes...LOL Since he is the peacemaker and the one closest in age to his sister, well he just gave in...not threat to his male ego...now his brothers did give him fit. I think that son will be a great Dad to girls!

Just too cute...enjoy, enjoy...and enjoy this year with him before full time school.
