Girlfriends...

We invited two of Lola's girlfriends to our house yesterday for a play date. Immediately all three girls ran to our dress-up chest and began to change. It was raining princess gowns. Tiaras were picked through, heels were being matched, and dresses were thrown.

"I am the MOST beautiful girl in the world!" Confident Lola looks in the mirror and inspects her ensemble.

"No. I AM the most beautiful girl in the world!" Equally as confident, Anna tosses a boa across her shoulders.

"No. I am the most beautiful girl IN THE WORLD!!!" Lola raises her voice and tosses on a necklace.

"No. I am." Chirps Kate, friend number 2. I look up from my novel and sit back to observe this chick fight unfold.

"Actually. I AM the MOST beautiful girl IN THE WORLD." Lola affirms her statement with a confident smile and a twirl.

"NO! I am." Anna frowns.

"No!!! Actually, I am." Kate chirps in again a little louder this time.

"I am the most beautiful one." Anna tries again.

Lola takes one step back and looks at them, "Okay, girlfriends. We are ALL the MOST BEAUTIFUL girls in the world." Lola smiles knowing she has the last word.

I put my book down and smile. Oh. My. Gosh. She is compassionate. I have a compassionate daughter! A compassionate daughter that loves her girlfriends and loves the last word. My job raising her is done.


Tomorrow, I am having my own play date with a girlfriend. We too will make it rain gowns, tiaras, and heels. Renatamic, my friend of 23 years, is flying from Chicago and joining me for a well needed girlfriend's night.

I can't wait to tell her that "I am the MOST beautiful girl IN THE WORLD!" Actually, I just can't wait to talk.

The MomBabe said...

Awww, you are gonna have some great stories for us come Monday right?

tricki_nicki said...

I'm so jealous of the princess clothes! We don't have anything like that around here...but my boys would love a cute little sister to dress up. NEED A GIRL! Yours is so dang cute.

the dragonfly said...

Oh, girls night! I'm very jealous. I miss that!

And you have a very sweet little girl. :)

Jeni said...

Lola the Diplomat! Perhaps a future as Secretary of State in store for her as she could smooth over a lot of international ruffled feathers with ways like that!

Sue said...

Isn't it great when our kids do something so great right in front of us! Give yourself a nice pat on the back and celebrate with your girlfriend!
I miss the dress up princess stage. :(

Karen said...

Yeah, mom, for instilling the things that matter! It's such a proud moment when you see it in action.

Have a great time with your own friend!

Kelly said...

Your daughter is a smart girl...she knows how to keep the peace!!

You are gorgeous too--have a great night with your friend!!

Just Janice said...

You are the most beautiful Queen Mommy in the World - next to me of course :)

Crystal said...

Well, I too am the most BEAUTIFUL GIRL in the world, but I am happy to share the title with Lola, her friends, and you OHmommy.

Smart A$$ Mom said...

my daughter was slighted some chromosome, she never got into the whole 'princess, prettiest girl in the world'....which I suppose is in the best interest of the family as we couldn't possibly support two me's.

Have a wonderful GIRLS WEEKEND!!!

Around The Funny Farm said...

Oh how fun! I need a girlfriend night out too.

I'm calling my baby daddy and telling him!

:-))

Katie said...

Too cute, yea for you to get a girl's night!! Have fun!

Rachel said...

Have a fabulously wonderful time and Lola ROCKS!

krissy said...

I think that Lola gets her compassion from her loving, giving momma! I have a feeling about you that when a friend is in need and distress; you are the first to help her out! You seem compassionate as well and very, very loving!

That's why I come to your blog!! Your a good person and a good friend. Kudo's too momma!

renatamic said...

you ARE the MOST BEAUTIFUL woman in the whole world...both inside and out!!! i can't wait to see you, catch up and paint the town red!!

and sweet, confident lola - who knows when to back down from an argument!!

'ale ciocia naprawde mysli ze ona jest najpiekneijsza...ona i mala finka!!'

Lisa said...

You're all just beautiful but let's face it--blondes always have the edge--kidding!!!
I love watching those princess parties--really funny if a little boy is part of it--many of my friends have mommy blackmail of their sons wearing my girls' recetail (spelled wrong--no coffee yet!) tutus and heels :)
Have so much fun with your playdate!!!

Stephanie said...

Lola is beautiful! And so are you! Hope you have a great weekend with your friend!

suchsimplepleasures said...

NO...I am THE MOST HOTTEST girl IN THE WORLD...next to all my other hot girlfriends...like you!!
have fun with your bff!!
xoxo

LceeL said...

They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Lola must be getting a good example to work from. Good for you. Oh, and by the way. You. are. HAWT.

Stacey @Real World Mom said...

Aww, how sweet is that?! Good going, Mom! Have a great time on your girl's night!

Kristen said...

Have a great time tonight, and try not to talk about the kiddos once!! Only shoes, shopping, dessert, and other *important* things in life!

Cheers!

LunaNik said...

Woah, it's way freaky the way you blanked out the other childrens' faces. Creepy. Heh. Wow.

And you look lovely as usual. So, when do I get to meet OhMommy?? **pouting**

Cecily R said...

Have a good time

Ashlee said...

What a coincidence...my daughter thinks she is the most beautiful girl in the world too. :0)

MamaWise said...

So cute! I get T3 saying "I am the STRONGEST boy in the world" and then GG comes barreling by and bowls him over.

Keeping my fingers crossed for your friend that she makes it through this snow storm - how yucky is it getting out there? Damn!

Jenni said...

Whomever invented girl's night out is the greatest! Even if it's only every 3 months, I always feel so refreshed and renewed!

Have a great time!

April said...

Lola needs to get Clinton & Obama together in the same room so that she can work her magic on them!

Lizzy in the Burbs said...

Awww, your Lola is a little peace maker! Good for her, and good for you for teaching her to be so kind!

Have a great weekend visiting with your friend! The picture of the two of you is really nice!

What a little sweetie! Willing to share the "beautiful girl" title with ALL her friends. That's a true friend, indeed. :-)

Nissa said...

Have a fantastic girls' night out!

It's great that your princess knows how to compromise and make everyone feel confident. :)


That pic is kinda creepy-how you photoshopped those girls' faces out! lol

suchsimplepleasures said...

Kelly said...

Simply lovely all around. Molly has a playdate tomorrow, too. Don't think she is quite ready for the princess gowns. I know I'm not ready. I don't quite know what I'll do with all that girlness, when she is. I will probably just sit back and take it all in with love and awe. Have fun with your bud.

just jamie said...

Wow. Those really are beautiful girls.

Girl friends. What else can you say? They rock.

Amy said...

Girlfriends? Try sisters! That's a slice of competitive hell on a daily basis!
You are smokin' hot my friend and I hope you two have an awesome night out!

Karen MEG said...

Oh, your Lola is one classy little girl.
I love girlie playdates. Little G has a weekly (sometimes twice a week) playdate with her BFF and they have such fun!
Enjoy YOUR girlie weekend with your BFF!!

John-Michael said...

Right now, I wish that there were no pictures of you to see. Without image or description, I would have no hesitation in declaring that you, My Dear Lady are as beautiful as any woman has ever been. For you have revealed your beauty in countless illustrations of your soul's intent; in the comments giving support, encouragement, and hope to others, that I have read; in the focus of your stories and accounts of your life and those with whom you share life.

Yes! Without question, and in the absence of any pictorial representation of your visage, I would deem you as beautiful as any woman (or person) has ever been.

Rob said...

Okay, you are both the most beautiful girls in the world! (Well, I am just being compassionate for the blond who is undoubtedly incredibly hot until she stands next to you.)

Autumn LeBeau said...

Blog hopping. How adorable! Isn't it great when you realize they're compassionate or sensitive? It means they're growing up (unfortunately!)

Jenny from Mommin' It Up! said...

Those girls look like they are having FUN! I wanna be invited over next time!
Momminitoops! Blog Hoppin! (snowed in!)

Wendi said...

How ironic...my Claire thinks SHE is the most beautiful girl in the world...and she wears her tiara proudly!!!

Have a fabulous...most deserved... night out with your girlfriend!!!

Look at you with your 60 comments! Wowza chica!
Yes, that mascara is my absolute hands down favorite! I keep trying new ones, being disappointed and going back to it. I've been using it for roughly 10 years now. :-)

Cheffie-Mom said...

hahaha, I just love your blog. "Im the most beautiful girl in the world" is so great. I feel the same way about my daughter and that kind of confidence is amazing. I just started a blog called "I Overcooked My Family" where I just recently dedicated a part of it to my daughter. Well I hope all is well.

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

Your job is, indeed, done. Once they figure out how to keep the peace amongst females, it's smooth sailing.

Amy said...

Hope you two beautiful girls are having a beautiful time!

The Immoral Matriarch said...

That is so sweet!

The Schneider's said...

Job well done OhMommy! You have raised one very sweet and compassionate little girl! I love it when Jonah shares things with his friends or with our family or just gives us hugs and kisses for no reason! It makes me think maybe I'm doing something right! ;0) Enjoy your girl's night out!!!

Rhea said...

This story made me wish I had girls. I love seeing little girls play dress up. (and, yay, you do have a compassionate daugter!)

I used to dress up with my sister and cousin all the time...and put on plays. Have your kids started putting on plays yet? Another thing boys don't really seem to do...
