Chess makes you beautiful

So, lately, Lexi has had a thing for chess.  First she discovered she could play it on the computer.   Not well, mind you, she usually ends up in checkmate in about 2 minutes (on the "easy" setting) and is gleeful when her queen gets captured.   Then Kelly dragged out her old chess set.  Lexi loves it.  She "plays" against mama or herself or the pieces themselves.  

The chess set has a leather board with metal pieces with red felt stickers on the bottoms so they slide easily.  However it is old and the stickers come off...    And if there's something Lexi likes more than chess, it is STICKERS.   So when Kelly left her unattended with the chess set and Edward (sleeping in the bassinet nearby), this is what she found:

When she was asked what on earth she was doing, Lexi said "I'm trying to make him beautiful!!!"   So naturally, we had to take a picture before carefully explaining why we don't do that....

  1. Emma says she did a good job..."He looks VERY handsome with the stickers on him." So from one almost three year old to another...well done Lexi! If it makes you feel any better, the same would have happened here, but probably without the interest in chess! :)
