My plans to have a weekend of full evenings to myself was (somewhat) thwarted. A project came back that needed further editing. Not a problem at all; just one of the benefits of being self-employed. 9-5 is a misnomer.

On Friday night I started to weed through the photos that I had taken before I left. I only edited the three photos I used in my last post, but the bulk of the remaining photos made me think of the “Little Miss” series. In particular, Little Miss Giggles.

Little Miss Giggles

Do you guys remember the Little Miss and Mr. Men books? If not? Then you are not as old as I am. Sigh.

While I was editing photos for this “Little Miss” post, I read a post by my friend Secret Agent Josephine…and Baby Bug was wearing a Little Miss Trouble shirt! It was a sign that I was onto something! And also had me wondering- where can I get Emily a Little Miss shirt?


On to the post!

We are a family that laughs a lot. And by a lot I mean A LOT. Honey may be a little shy, but THE DUDE IS FUNNY. As are the short people in our house. I really do need to post some of our conversations. I’ll get on that.

Miss Emily may have a stubborn streak (Hello, MINI ME), but she is generally a happy little girl. Not only is she happy, but she has the best belly laugh EVER.


I need to catch it on video again but it sounds quite similar to what it did a year ago. But not so baby-esque. She is almost 20 months old, you know. She is mature.

She will find something funny and the laughter CANNOT BE CONTAINED.

Here we go

Laughing.  Again.

Still. Laughing.

Her laughing has nothing to do with me. Nope. Or even her beloved Daddy. She laughs at this guy.

Nate Dawg

And also? This guy.

G Force

The pull out all the stops to make her laugh. They have a knack for it.

Belly Laugh

Yep.  Laughing.

Laughter really is the best medicine for a Momma who misses her babies. I return home today. Huzzah!

These photos make me think that I need to laugh even more than I do already. While wearing a Little Miss t-shirt, if they even exist in my size.

    Yup, laughter really is the best medicine! Glad you have big doses of it there, I’m sure it helps cheer the soul on “those days”. Love the photos :-)

    Nothing better than kids laughing! Can make anyone smile!
    I say buy an iron on transfer (I bet you can find one on line) and make you very own Little miss shirts! That way you can find the perfect white T!

    Good luck!

    Those Little Miss and Mr. books were my favorite- my Mom has sent me a lot of them and I love reading them to my nephew (ok, mostly it is for me!).

    I think those Little Miss t-shirts are available at Target in the States…what size does Miss Emily wear? I’ll look and see if they still have any at our Target. :-)

    I don’t know about baby-size Little Miss shirts…but I got my ‘Little Miss Naughty’ shirt at Bluenotes and they have a bunch of them, all the time!

    I got my kids shirts @ They are made by Junk Food clothing. They get new stock in all the time. My kids LOVE Mr Men and Little Miss books – they even have a show on the Cartoon Network. Crazy what comes around again.

    I’ve also seen some adult “little miss” shirts at Zellers in Penticton.

  11. The Over-Thinker May 25, 2008 6:32 pm edit

    Yes! They have them at Target! If Bethany doesn’t beat me to it, would you like me to pick a couple up for you? And I’m pretty sure I saw some really cute “Mr” shirts if you want me to send you some for the boy-people in your house, too :)

    I loved Mr. Tickle! For some reason nobody in my generation remembers these books.

    I love this post! Miss Emily is truly a doll and those brother’s of hers must be hilarious! Laughter really is the best medicine – Thanks for brightening up my evening!

    Such great photos of laughter, it truly is the best medicine for anything, and nothing, absolutely nothing, beats a child’s laugh!

  15. JennyL May 26, 2008 7:17 am edit

    I have seen Little Miss in woman’s tees in Walmart (Ontario)…so maybe they have kids too? They also have woman’s Sesame Street – which is fun, too. :)

    I definitely remember the Little Miss books – I loved them when I was a kid!

    Laughter is truly the best medicine. Such cute photos of your kids!

    Freelance = around the clock. Grrr. I love the freedom of freelance but sometimes the “just one more little change” can get me down.

    I too loved the little Ms and Mr books. I remember when one of mine fell in the toilet and got ruined and it was the most terrible day, I looooved that book!

    Kaitlyn has also developed a love for these books too and will bring stacks of at least 15 home with us from the library. They are not so fun to read though, too long and repetitive but the pictures are so cute so we make up new stories to go with them.

    I loved the Little Miss books. Our neighbor growing up had them ALL and I was really only her friend for the books.

    Those photos made me giggle! What a cutie!

    I remember the Little Miss books! Which means I am not a 12 year old. Suddenly I feel like I could have a conversation with a child of the 80’s about the Corey’s and Lloyd Dobbler. I have arrived!
