So Gymboree had something called Gymbuck Redemption, which basically meant you could save money on the clothes you bought.
Gymbuck Redemption has been known to give me a headache because I never exactly know what I want. However, this time I'm pleased on what I picked out.
So without further ado, here is an entry called Inside Natalie's Closet: GBR (Gymbuck Redemption) edition.
"Hey Natalie, what do you think of the new dress?"
Natalie says, "Meh."
Then I started to sing creepy Yo Gabba Gabba songs and she warmed up:
"Hey Natalie, I got you some sunglasses to go with the dress. What do you think?"
Natalie says, "Meh."
But then I sang again and waved to a neighbor who walked past with her dog. "Nice song," she called out as I sang about not biting your friends.
"Come on Natalie, time for an outfit change. We'll pretend we're Jennifer Lopez."
And yes, that is a plastic skull that she's holding. She refused to let it go. "SKULL WANTS PICTURE TOO!" she bellowed as the same neighbor who had passed before, returned home. She probably thinks we're some freak house who collects skulls and talks about not biting people.
"Natalie, we just have one more outfit left. Okay?"
"WTF do you mean one more outfit?"
After a bite of chocolate, Natalie returned.
Only she didn't come back as Natalie.
She came back as a fairy.
She had to have the unicorn purse. While deciding what I should order, Natalie had spotted the purse and had gone, "For me?"
"Yes, Natalie, the purse is for you." And yes, she insisted on wearing her pink boots.
"I yuv the horse," Natalie said.
She doesn't always laugh when I sing. No, sometimes I have to run into the house to get a smile. I'm not kidding. Should I be concerned that my fake pain causes her pleasure?
After I ran into the house, Natalie pointed and shrieked, "Mommy went bang!" (And the same neighbor came outside to throw some trash away and saw me colliding ON PURPOSE with my home. Yeah. We're freaks in her eyes.)
Did I mention that the shirt had wings on the back?
"Natalie, I got you some sunglasses to go with this outfit too!"
I was trying to get her to peek demurely out of her glasses. She kept going, "What's demore mean?"
"Mommy is funny when she smacks into a wall!"
This picture is called: "Natalie. With a Tumbleweed."
"Okay Natalie, just a few more pictures. Smile for Mommy!"
"Love you, Natalie."
"Yuv you, Mommy."
