Today, I went to the Mall of America (yes, yet again) with my children. It was Toddler Tuesday and the event was The World's Largest Show and Tell (and by "World's Largest", they meant 35). We didn't bring anything to show because we didn't know what the event was ahead of time. I told Ocean to show off my car keys, but she said that was embarrassing. The description of the event said to "Show off your favorite toy, art project, or special something and tell us what it means to you," and Ocean always likes to take rules quite literally (unlike her mother).
So then I came up with the idea that she could show off baby Peace, and she liked that idea (because baby Peace is something special to her, as per the rules). So, Ocean put baby Peace in the Mei Tei and, when her number was called, she went up there with 4 other kids in her group to show her off.
Ocean and Peace looked so sweet up there, it made me want to cry.
Ocean didn't win her group... that went to a little boy and his remote-controlled car. They could probably tell that we phoned it in and just thought up something at the last minute. Or, maybe it was the fact that Ocean is 7 and was standing up there with a bunch of 3 year olds. But, either way, they were super cute and the audience said, "Ahhh..." when they saw them.
