Little Pumpkin Doodle Update

Hope you’re ready for the weekend, I know I am! I thought I would update this posting since it’s been awhile. Here are some updates on Little Pumpkin Doodle’s favorite things as she grows.

WHAT SHE’S LEARNING: French and Gymnastics

FAVORITE SONGS:B52’s Love Shack, Who let the Dogs, Le Petite Train and Heads UP, by Steve Vai

BOOKS: All things Fancy Nancy, Pirates of the Sea and Dog, by Matthew Van Fleet

SHOWS: Secret Agent Oso and Jungle Junction

FUNNY QUIRKS. She still names all her dresses, and her all time fave is Laura Ashley (she wears it all the time). Her new funny quirk is stopping and doing this dance where she shakes her hands and drops to the ground, for some reason she thinks it’s hilarious.

FAVORITE PAST TIME: Ballet and reading her books.

Thank you for your readership:)

Stay tuned for more to come.
