3 Years ago today, daughter number 3 came into our lives. (If it seems like it was just recently that I made a birthday blog post for another daughter…you’re right, it was. 2 weeks ago. I’ve got one more left.)
Frankie’s our spunky, extroverted comedian-in-the-making. We fondly call her “Lips” because she has inherited the famous “Big Ass Lopez Lips”.
Here’s an example of her comedic exploits…On our recent tropical vacation, we signed her up for the mini-disco. At the end of the night, all the kids get on stage and dance for their parents. The resort auditorium was full. They were playing a sort of “musical chairs” game where you pass a hat around and if it lands on your head when the music stops, you’re eliminated.
Music stops, hat is on Frankie’s head. She’s visibly PO’d and annoyed (I guess she inherited her dad’s distaste for losing as well).
Emcee: (Think Spanish accent) Hey baby, come over here to the mic and tell everyone your name.
Frankie, hand on hip, hat on head sways her hips over with a very annoyed look.
Emcee: So baby, what’s your name.
Frankie: (Looking up at him with a piercing glare) It’s Frankie.
Emcee: And where are you from?
Frankie: (Hand on hip still, piercing glare, clearly PO’d) I’m from NEW YORK! (We’re from Toronto and she knows it).
AND WITHOUT WAITING FOR A REACTION FROM THE EMCEE AND WITH HER BEST MODEL WALK, SHE STOMPS OF THE STAGE WITH HER HAND STILL ON HER HIP. The crowd, at this point, erupts with laughter and applause.
Happy 3rd Birthday Supermodel!
