Thursday Vignette

Picture the display at the front of most Old Navy stores: A family of mannequins, all decked out in the latest styles from head to toe. Complete with the family dog, of course!

Flash through these freeze frames with me.
I am at the check out, and Phoenix is walking around the mannequin family, marveling at them.

Frame 1: I look over, and he is riding on the family dog.
Frame 2: I glance back again, and he standing with the mommy mannequin, holding her hand and sucking his thumb. Just like in this post - only with a substitute mannequin-digit!
Frame 3: One more glance and there he is again, this time holding the daddy mannequin's toe, still sucking his other thumb.

That boy.


  1. Oh my goodness! What a riot! He is just too cute!

  2. this is a delightful post, and you've described it so well, I can envision just what the scene must have looked like. what I really like is that you appeared to be so calm about it all and just let it happen. what better way to deal than just going with the flow, right? have a great week Bethany!


Put it right here, babe!
