When Katie started to give me a hard time about taking a nap today, I said "Well, what do you want to bring upstairs with you to sleep with?"
And she proceeded to grab her:
plastic clamshell little mermaid happy meal necklace
It reminded me of the scene in "The Jerk" when Steve Martin threatens to leave saying "I don't need anything! Except I need this ashtray... And that's it! And, I need this paddle game... but that's it! I don't need anything else...I need this..."
Not for not trying but I couldn't get a nice picture of the little diva on her way to nap (she made it very clear she didn't want her picture taken) so I took this one later tonight, surrounded by her growing collection of "what she needs".
