outfit of the day(bird): misunderstanding




dress~ b. (a resale shop)
boots~ thrifted by my sister, izzy

if you know anything about my daughter. mimi, then you know she likes to pretend to be superheroes. usually it's batman, but she's also been known to be wonder woman, thor, the hulk, captain america, superman, iron man... you get the picture. anyway, one day last week, she, ben, and i were at a restaurant waiting for our takeout. the woman working was talking to mimi, asking her questions and just making basic small talk. the kind of small talk you make with a three-year old. she asked how old mimi was and mimi said, "i'm three! and i'm bat girl!" the woman looked a bit shocked and said, "no, honey, you're not a bad girl!" she then gave me a dirty look, shook her head, and walked away, leaving me no chance to explain. it was all a very very awkward misunderstanding. i am sure that woman went into the kitchen and told the cooks all about the awful mommy out front. ugh.

i hope you're all having a great day!

xoxo, nora bird

  2. Aww oh no! Was Mimi confused by the woman's response? You're a wonderful mom so I wouldn't worry about what they thought!

  8. Oh, pretty dang funny, Nora! As I was reading this I was laughing as the punch got more and more funny. HM asked me what was so funny? So I read it to him and we both laughed a ton. Then his comment was, "She should have hurried and said, 'yes! we left her costume home' ". Mimi is so dang cute!!!!

    Thanks for the compliments and the always encouraging words.
