All's "Hair" In Love And War

So just so that you don't think that Butterbean has dropped off of the face of the earth...(she totally hasn't...I mean but she HAS been a little busy what with walking and toddling and learning new words and basically being a toddler.  She's swamped.)

Here's a little convo we had just recently.  Please overlook the empty boxes and dead plants in the background.  It's not that I'm against cleaning up my front porch, it's just that I didn't do it BEFORE I started clicking away.

So...Butterbean has a little bit of an issue with her hair.  And she came to me, her very loving and very wise Mimi.

 Butterbean: Ummm...hey Mimi???
Me: Yes my little love?
Butterbean: Um, well, um could you maybe help me out with something?
Me: Of course I can, my angel.  What is it?
Butterbean: Oh,'s my hair I mean...

 ....just LOOK at it, it's just you know...LAYING there. And stuff.
Me: Uh-huh.  I see.  Well...have you thought about putting a little hair clip in it?
Butterbean: What's a hairclip?
Me: Well, I think I have one here (digging in pocket) um, yes, I do.  Here ya go kid.

 Butterbean:  What the heck is THAT?  It's the most WONDERFUL thing I have EVER SEEN IN MY WHOLE LIFE!!!
Me: 'Bean honey it's just a hair clip...let's dial down the enthusiasm just a bit mkay precious?

 Butterbean: YAY!!! I HAVE IT!!! I HAVE THE HAIRCLIP!!!! LOOK IT'S A HAIRCLIP!!! BY THE POWERS OF GREYSKULL...(wait Mimi...that's from He-Man.  I don't even know who He-Man is...)
Me: (Sorry) Um, yes baby, that's a hairclip.  Here...let me show you how to put it in...

 Butterbean: OKAY!

 Butterbean:'re gonna give that back right?  Mimi?

 Butterbean: Man, she is totally ignoring me right now.  I can't believe this.  What's the deal here?  Why did she take my hairclip?  I loved it so.

 Me: There you go precious!  What do you think?
Butterbean:  Oh yeah, that's what I'm talkin' about.  Beyonce' ain't got nothin' on me baby!  Talk about puttin' a ring on betta put a HAIRCLIP on it girlfriend!

 Butterbean: Hold on a minute Mimi, I think you need a close-up of this.  Let me get on my ride and roll on over to you...
Me: Uh, 'Bean honey that's not really necessary...I have, like hundreds of shots here...

 Butterbean: Let me just scoot on a little get your camera ready Mimi!
Me: Uh...Bean that's close baby...just know...

 Butterbean: Just. a. little. closer.
Me: 'Bean I'm bout to fall off the porch honey...

Me: Uh 'Bean, honey this isn't normal darling.  Just BACK THAT PONY UP A LITTLE MIMI LOVES HER TOES DARLING!!! SHE'D LIKE TO KEEP THEM!!!

Butterbean: Are you ready Mimi?
Me: (Completely melted by those eyes) What toes?

Me: *sigh* Absolutely adorable.
