Proud Owner...

...of her new pillow pet! It's name is her usual "Pretty Princess (insert name of animal)". In this instance, a unicorn. She's been wanting one of these since we happened to let her watch Nick Jr. -not realizing that they have commercials for Sketchers and Pillow Pets every 10 minutes.

Last week while we were watching Maddie during swim lessons, Ryan decided that he would give Maddie a pillow pet if she held her head under the water for 5 seconds. (She's a face-in-the-water-phobe)Without realizing the power of the pillow pet, he told her this while she was in the water and BAM! She did it. We told her after lessons however that she had not been a good listener with her teacher(truth), so she had to prove herself obedient this lesson. And the teacher gave her a task as well - 3 dives. She did great. A bonafide swimmer. Maddie got to ride in the truck with her Dad to pick out her special friend. Welcome to the family Pretty Princess Unicorn.
