Comments: Girls and Boys Together

Oooooooh, baby, are you in trouble. Please tell me this incident is not why you were looking for the lyrics to 'Come on, Eileen" because that would be upsetting. I would congratulate you on snaring the esteemed Alex for your daughter, except if she really is a belle he will only be one of many hearts she breaks...maybe Jack will work for her, after all?

Hee hee hee. You are in so much trouble when she hits the teen years.

Oh man, this is just one step to the dreaded teenage years. Why must it start so soon. My daughter is also two and I remember my first words when we saw the ultra-sound. "Teenage daughter."

Hells Belles. I was raised by a belle. Anything you need to know...ask me. Maisy may be showing the first signs of "Belle"-ness. Hard to tell. If she begins to rise late (using the word, rise)or if she begins to instruct others to "fetch" things for her, then I'd be concerned.

Also, watch for words like "perspire" begin to creep into her vocabulary. Whispering words like "menangitis" or "loose" are sure symptoms. OH, the playing of music no one can hear. Hot baths at three. Powdering. I don't see Maisy affected.

With that said, a belle would never carry her own book bag. She's got that one down. Only Dora the Explorer has to do such things. Dora is no belle! A belle would also never be seen with a monkey in Ugg boots.

No, no, no! Beautiful Maisy is going to marry one of MY sons! I'm thinking Raphi, because she has the moxie to HANDLE him and he NEEDS TO BE KEPT IN LINE. Although Tre would be smitten and follow her devotedly. I don't think Max will marry until his late 30s - early 40s, and I understand that Maisy won't want to wait that long.
BUT! there will be NO ALEX. He only serves as a plaything upon which she will cut her belle teeth.
