I wanna fly

I wanna fly mommy! I wanna fly... is what she calls out as she flaps her arms and jumps off the couch! Wishing so much that I can say,"Yeah, you can do it." But since I don't have any pixie dust and you can't just think of a wonderful thing I have to explain to a 3¾ year old the facts of life... that only birds, airplanes & pteranodons can fly.
Thank goodness Daddy's good at pretend flying her around the house.

Hi,

Just wondering if you and Colin received the e-mail i sent to Pixel Pop? I've sent 2 now over the past month about doing a photoshoot for me in Seattle. I'm Australian but visiting family in Seattle mid-march and would like some photos taken of me and my nieces.

In the second e-mail i asked for a reply ASAP as i'm leaving soon - could you please check to see he got it? I did get the automatic reply e-mail both times.

Thanks,
Victoria

Oh my goodness! My 3 1/2 yr old and I just had the pixie dust and why-she-can't-really-fly- conversation last week! I completely fumbled over my words!

Super cute picture!!

Totally off topic but I just HAD to ask if you have heard of the singer Meaghan Smith?? I've learned a few new favorites from your play list on your blog and I thought you would enjoy her. I just heard her music for the first time last week and thought you would like it too. Anywho, http://www.meaghansmith.com/
