To help you celebrate: random pictures.
First up: a nose picking toad. Yes. Really. And you KNOW he was promptly turned into my desktop, right?
Tori the oh-so-happy-tween. Today was the 6th grade sock hop at school. She screamed and cried and wrung her hands and begged the heavens for a poodle skirt today. I improvised with this outfit. She begged for curls. We got up early to do them… and she complained they were not straight.
Yes, please re-read that. She complained (with eyes watering up) that her curls. were. not. straight.
Really, I have nothing else to say.
And lastly: a photo of the sunrise this morning. Taken on the side of the road with a horrified Tori that attempted to embarrass me with a ‘Nice, mother, I can see your underwear.’ My calm response of ‘Oh, do you like the new thong?’ was met with a chilly silence. Oh yeh. I have mentioned I LOVE this age, right?!
Remember: today is the day you can balance an egg on your nose while drinking a Route 44 Diet Cherry Limeade from Sonic as you check out artsy fartsy stuffs up at the Arts and Crafts Festival in Fairhope this afternoon. Really. Honest. I read it on the internets… so it MUST be true.
