This is what happens when ...

… our DNA collides.

I can’t decide which scenario is more disturbing. On one hand, you have a construction worker, equipped with measuring tape and ear protectors. This construction worker happened to show up on the job complete with fairy wings and their beloved baby doll. One could only imagine the ridicule that would ensue.

On the other hand, you have the fairy princess, preciously handling her darling baby doll. In the midst of completing all of her girly duties, she grabbed the measuring tape and ear protectors to take care of some business. If I were her future husband, I’d be really really afraid right now.

Who needs a boy and a girl when you can have just one and enjoy the benefits of both? I’m resisting every urge I have to make a Calliope reference right now. However, anyone who hasn’t read Middlesex (do you exist, if so, read it NOW) would be totally lost. Any other crazed attempt of referencing hermaphrodites in the same post as my daughter would certainly guarantee that she will disown me when she’s old enough to read this. So, I didn’t reference Calliope, I just told you that I thought about it.

If we didn’t have Kate as entertainment around these parts, I’m not sure what we’d do. At least we know she'll keep me in blog material for a loooooong time.

What a cute picture! Ya know, you can blackmail her with that pic when she's a teen!

She is GREAT blog material!

Crazy Mo said...

I think that blogs exist merely because we have children and husbands. I like to think she's a modern fairy who can take care of herself! Look out Prince Charming!!

C. Beth said...

Oh, I love that photo! Perfect!

Our little girls have a lot in common. They are both very "frisqui" (word verification.)

Kristin said...

Love that pic. She is thinking outside the box.

Hey all! I just want to wish you and your family a very Happy New Year!

A. said...

Ha ha, I love the thought of the construction worker coming to work in fairy wings... So put a smile on my insomniac face.

Keep this as proof that you never squashed her creativity or need to express herself.

Call Me Cate said...

I love it. And I'd love to hear her take on what she was doing. It's probably something completely different altogether.

Lyndsay said...

dizzblnd - Yes, sometimes I wonder what I'd write about if I didn't have her :)

Crazy Mo - You are totally right! Craig and Kate deserve special recognition for their valuable contribution to this blog!

Beth - Chickie and Kate are awfully similar, aren't they?

Kristin - Yes, she is. I think that will serve her well when she grows up.

Janah - Happy New Year to you as well!

A. - Not much puts a smile on in the face of insomnia, so I am glad I could help.

Jeanne - Amen, what a brilliant idea.

Cate - I'd almost be afraid to ask :)

That is a GREAT photo! It would be perfect on a big screen at, say, a daughter's wedding. :)

What a fabulous pic- Kyra used to be quite the contradiction as well. Thanks for sharing.

Tiffany said...

LOL! That is too precious! I'm right there with you...thank goodness I have a 3 year old to blog's therapy for mommies!

I have an award waiting for you on my blog.

I have a different theory about this one. I think she is showing mimicking her daddy! It's like this. Daddy is a big strong construction worker, shown by using the proper tools of his trade. However, Daddy is also a caregiver, hence the baby doll. I'm just not sure about the wings, though. you have something you would like to share?

Kate, come see Aunt Sherry soon. I miss you.
