What did this mean? What was I s'posed to do?
Apparently, you fill the special VIP bag with some of the kids favorite things so they can share them with the class. THEN, you create a poster. Just a little something (3 or 4 pictures) that tells about the kid.
Ahem....I apparently have no edit button. Have you MET me? Ask me to make a poster, and I'm gonna make a POSTER! I struggle to keep things "small." 3 or 4 pictures was NOT going to be enough to cover MY Maggie.
So, after hours (it may or may not have been 12:40 a.m.) of sorting, printing, choosing, cutting, arranging and applying, I was finally finished with Maggies VIP poster. Let it be duly noted that Maggie DID actually help with quite a bit of this poster. In fact, she somehow came up with every known malady possible last night. She was in bed, but her stomach was hurting, she needed an ice pack. She suddenly felt like she was gonna barf, she needed the red bowl. Her leg was hurting, she needed a band aid. She was "scared." She had to go to the bathroom. WHATEVER! This went on for hours...as in, she didn't FINALLY go to bed and stay there until just before midnight. Clearly the anticipation of her big VIP day was too much. So, in the midst of all her "troubles" I gave up and just let her stay out with me and work on the poster.
"Mommy, are you making my post board?"
"Can I glue the letters on? I'll just put it right here."
After I told her to calm down (she was being loud) and to sit quietly or get in bed. She knelt down next to the table and watched me. I was laying the letters out for her name. When I finished, she looked up with her beautiful eyes and whispered excitedly...
"Mommy, it's just perfect."
It was so cute and sweet, I couldn't help but smile at her wonderment.
So here it is: (sadly..my camera battery is dead, so I only had my crappy cell phone camera)
See, nobody contains Maggie.
There is just too much story to tell.
How much do you love that her initials are MVP!
Her baby shower announcement stated that
Most Valuable Princess
was on her way.
This morning she willingly put on a dress AND boots (which I'm sad you can't see) and let me do her hair. I had to play it up, about how this was her incredibly special day, and she needed to look her absolute best. She fell for it.
Nothing like the water cooler and a garbage can for awesome backdrops.
She was so cute and excited she willingly gave me big pretty smiles.
Max was equally excited for her.
Or at least he was excited to stand next to her for a picture.
Tragically....he decapitated some of the princesses on the poster.
She is growing up so fast.
I can't believe the things she thinks, says and does sometimes.
It seems like yesterday she was my completely silent (as in almost never cried), sleeping baby that just took the world in around her.
I'm so thankful to have my Most Valuable Princess.
She's definitely VIP in our house.
Can't imagine one day without her drama, her silly songs, her crazy faces or her DRAMA.
Love you little Magger doodle doo.
