Molly may be at her most adorable age right now, four and a half years old.  A year ago, she was a dopey toddler.  In another year, she will be a hearty five year old kid.  Right now she is in the middle, no longer a babyish mess but not yet a big kid.  Here is a snapshot of what makes Molly adorable right now…

Molly sleeps in a ladybug tent at night.  The tent is filled with stuffed animals and about 80 magazines.

Molly vaguely resembles Mike Wazowski.  Luckily, though, Molly does have two eyes.

Molly calls peanuts “peanut butter nuts”.

Molly often wears her “M” cape with a princess costume and a tiara.  She calls this “Super Molly”.

Molly sincerely believes that her “M” cape makes her go faster.

Molly will only wear dresses that twirl properly.

Molly plays along with Dora the Explorer when the show prompts you for an answer.  We often hear her loudly yelling things like “Purple!” at the computer.

Molly judges things primarily by their color, with pink and purple being the best colors.  Luckily, this approach does not apply to people.

Molly says “No fair!” a lot.

Molly clambers a lot.  She clambers into her dining chair, onto her bed, etc. (Clamber: to climb, move, or get in or out of something in an awkward and laborious way, typically using both hands and feet.)

Molly believes that the Disney princesses are real.  She was initially confused by the idea of Disney World and Disney Land.  Which one do the real princesses live at?  Then she figured it out: “Disney World has the real people, and Disney Land has puppets.”

You will commonly find Molly wandering the house wearing nothing but skivvies and sparkly shoes, and sometimes only the shoes.

Molly always says her sister’s name as two syllables, “Cla-aire”.

Molly loves her big sister.  They spend a lot of time playing and hanging out on the weekends.  Yesterday, Claire went off for a playdate for a couple of hours.  Molly quickly got bored without Claire around and said, sadly, “What am I supposed to do now?”  Molly later stated that she really likes being with Claire.

Molly always smells good, even when she is hot and sweaty.  Well, not always; she is sometimes gassy — then look out!
