Time for bed girl...What THE HECK!

Yesterday, being Sunday, we let the girls choose a family movie. They picked the Jungle Book, which was a fine selection. Jeff and I however didn't really feel like watching it, so we let them watch it in our room.

We could hear them singing to all of the songs and having a good sisterly time together. After the movie, they were checking out the extra features. I think was hearing them start the Bear Necessities for the second time that Jeff and I decided it was time for bed.

Jeff being the nice husband went upstairs to disperse the party. I then heard him say, "OK, time for bed girl...HA HA HA HAH HA!"

He came back to the family room wiping tears from his eyes. I asked him what happened. He then told me what he saw.

Abbey, the oldest, was jumping on our bed like a trampoline. Lindsay on the other hand, was dancing in front of the TV, doing her best Mowgli impression. She had stripped off ALL of her clothes. She also had found and fashioned a towel into a Mowgli style diaper.

Am I surprised? Not really. Am I entertained? Thoroughly!

It's also Lindsay's birthday today. She is turning 9. Special post to follow.

Lindsay, Lindsay Lindsay.
I guess that's a pretty fun way to celebrate your last night of being 8. I just wonder how long it took her to secure the Mowgli "pants".
Sometimes I think that you should have named her Ramona.
