No, Amara didn’t get a tattoo! She gave a banana a tattoo!
A couple of weeks ago she was telling me about an idea she saw on Pinterest for tattooing a banana! Yep, Amara has a Pinterest account! Unfortunately, I didn’t have any bananas. This weekend when she slept over I had bananas!
I think she had forgotten but when I reminded her, she immediately grabbed her phone so she could check Pinterest, picked out the perfect banana and grabbed a toothpick. She sat down at the table and with each new thing she added she would bring it to me and Grampy to admire. She said the original tattoo artist used a pushpin so I found her a couple of those in different sizes. It was fun to watch her switch tools as she designed! She did all of this while the monkey bread baked and we waited for Mom and Dad to arrive. She couldn’t wait to show them her new art!
I fried the bacon and Amara asked me if she could be the one to cook the scrambled eggs. She has never done this at my house before – not sure if she has done it at home but she has certainly been watching. They were probably the best scrambled eggs any of us has ever had!
After breakfast Amara got her new camera out to take pictures of her banana art. This meant I had to get my camera out and take pictures of her banana art. Jenna laughed, “The banana has its own paparazzi.”
Amara told me the tattooing wouldn’t do anything to the banana so yesterday I peeled it and she was right! With the exception of some tiny dots where the cat and owl eyes were you couldn’t even tell. I sliced it up and put it in Jell-O for Grampy! Sometimes it is the simplest things that are the most fun.
