Meet Pamela. For you older readers you have already met her but for you new readers this is a first. She's adorable. And last week she gave me permission to call her "Pam-o". Really, she did. She told me, "Camille, you can call me Pam-o". And guess what, I do and I love it. I'm the only one too. Some of the other teachers called her Pamo and she said, "only Camille can call me Pamo, you have to call me Pamela". It's so cute. Every day she says out of nowhere, "Camille, I love you." She says it quite frequently too. And every time she says it I can't help but to smile and give a little laugh cuz it's just so darn cute. The other day as I was helping her change her clothes after a water table splashing incident she looked down at me and said, 'Camille, you're my best friend.' It was heart melting. I actually think a tear came to my eye because I couldn't believe that this little two-year old would actually call me her best friend all on her own. I love my job.
When Pamela...I mean Pamo sees my camera come out she automatically starts making different kind of faces. For instance, this is our sad face. Usually she doesn't let me be in the picture but on Friday she asked to sit on my lap and for me to make the faces too. After each picture I took she told me to turn my camera around so she could make sure the picture was a good one. We had some good ones that I just had to share because let's face it, this girl is my best friend and I have to post pictures of my best friend. :)
This is our angry face. Pamo is actually extremely good at making the angry faces. When she is angry she'll fold her arms and tell me in a very direct manner, "camille, I'm mad." It's so cute and funny that I have a hard time not laughing while she is infact feeling angry.Our silly faces. Very silly if you ask me.
Our happy faces. And just when I thought we were done making all the faces we could and had taken all the pictures that Pamo had the attention span for (cuz let's be honest, it took more than just a couple pictures to actually get these keepsakes), Pamo swings her precious little arm around me and says 'Camille, I love you.' And then I quickly swing my camera back up and snap a shot. I think I will treasure this picture for the rest of my life. I love my job. For those of you who don't spend any time with children-you're totally missing out.
Pamo, even though you can't read and have no idea what a blog is, I want you and everyone else to know that you're my best friend and that I love you. :D
