Miss.Pinkerton Turns 6

Today is Pinky's 6th  Birthday.
We celebrated on Sunday for convenience and to give us a bit of time between her and Rex's birthday on July 3rd. After changing her mind a few times she decided on a pool party (yay. I LOVE to wear swimsuits in public. Really.) and we sent out the invites.
She had a blasty blast.
She is so proud of the fact that she held her breath under water for 10 seconds.
I'm proud of the fact that I remembered to coat everyone in SPF 100.

This is Pinky with her best friend Jamiah. Pinky LOVES Jamiah. They hug when they see each other and they are crazy little girls together. 

Each year I interview the kiddos and compare with last years answers. I wanted to go with video this year because to hear Pinky is to fall in love with Pinky. She has such a way about her that you find yourself with the biggest, goofiest smile stretching from ear to ear. But alas, I am stumped when it comes to formatting video for the blog.

S - What is your name?
P - Makayla Pinky Levart Joy.
S- That's a bit scrambled, Dear.
P- Pinky is my Love name.
S- Alright. What is your favorite color?
P - You know this, Mom.
S - Just checking. Last year you said all different colors.
P- Well, I love Purple with orange and red and silver.
S - But it's still pink that captures your attention?
P - YES!!!!
S-  What is your favorite drink?
P - What's that thick drink?
S - Thick?
P - With the fruit?
S - Smoothies!
P - Yes! Strawberry smoothies!
S - You're a strawberry smoothie.
P - I know, I'm delicious.
S - (Laughing)
S- What's your favorite movie?
P - Hannah Montana
S - Yeah, that's a good one.
S - What's your favorite thing to do?
P - Hang out with you.
S - (I swallow a lump in my throat) I'm a very blessed Mama to have a daughter like you to hang with.
We are homies. BFF's.
P - Best Girlfriends!
(we do our special hand shake)
S - What's your favorite song?
P - Telephone by Lady GaGa
S - Oh.
 P - Don't you like it?
S - No, it doesn't have any subsistence. 
P - What does subs-tit-mence mean?
S - Subsistence means it's real. Lady Gaga's songs aren't about anything real.
P -  Phones are real.
S - Um, yeah, you got me there.
S - Where is your favorite place to go?
P - The beach!
S - Yeah! Me, too! What do you like about the beach? 
P - All the sand and we got to swim as much as we wanted and I liked looking for shells with you.
S - I like watching the rain clouds in the distance and building sand castles.
P - Ask me something else.
S - Right, enough about me. What do you want for your birthday?
P - Drums and a water holder.
S - (oh crap.) Are you talking about the Hello Kitty water dispenser you saw when you were 4?
P - Yes!
S - Why do you want a water dispenser?
P - So I can get myself water and see Hello Kitty.
S - Okay, sorry I couldn't get those.
P - (this is exactly how she talks, I'm not exaggerating at all.)  
Oh, that's fine. A mama can only do what a mama can do.
S - (half crying, half laughing) Thank you for your understanding. I'll try to get you drums and a water dispenser soon. You'll be thirsty after playing the drums.
P - I'm going to dance and sing AND play the drums so I will be very thirsty!
(She then demonstrates this miraculous one woman show for me and I sit back and pray time freezes.) 

Happy Birthday, Miss.Pinkerton! You are pure magic.
