Oh My God!

No, that exclamation is not because my girls did something amazingly incredible or amazingly stupid. No, those words came directly from Sophie’s mouth.

It’s her most recent favorite saying, whenever she makes a new discovery or sees something that bothers her. “Oh my God! Oh my God!” Over and over and over. Pretty soon she’ll be sending herself text messages: OMG! OMG! Over and over and over. But for now, she’s limited to expressing herself out loud.

Sophie wore a skirt for the first time in months the other day. She was very proud of her new look – and asked to view herself in the mirror. When she saw her image, she smiled. Broadly. Gleefully.

I guess the skirt thing goes hand in hand with the Barbie obsession I wrote about the other day. Come to think of it, however, she hasn’t asked to play with them since Saturday, so maybe the fad is on the decline. One can only hope.

In the meantime, my big girl is wearing lip gloss every chance she can (while hoping I won’t notice), and my little one outfits herself in sunglasses and skirts, and proclaims her favorite color is pink. Oh my God.
