birthdays and graduations and chai
We are going to Omaha for Malachi's first birthday soon.
I can't wait!
Katie has graduation pictures taken today with her 8th grade class. She chose everything about this outfit and made the flower headband...or as I call it...her crown.
Now. The scoop may be too low and the hem too short for her Principal's taste (and rules).
I have washed my hands of it. I sent her with a sweater and said, "Don't call me."
She loves it.
I think she's darling.
But da rules are da rules....and I'm letting her take the chance.
I told her I will not buy anything else if she is told she can't wear this. She will have to wear something she has already worn to school.
(I think it is plenty modest for what it's worth...but then I don't mind the costumes on DWTS...heh...cough cough.)
So we shall see...I'll let you know if she gets the go ahead.
I would never bend the rules.
I would just be a bonehead.
Remember the time I was told to wear a dark skirt for a concert and I took that to mean...dark orange.
Boy was my mom mad. I was just about Katie's age. Edison Jr. High School. Choir Concert.
"to dream the impossible dream....."
My tooth is much better today. It was infected and it was not going to get better without a root canal.
My dentist is super speedy. His assistant played the best music from her Pandora.
If you are in the Madison area and you need a great, fast dentist, let me know.
I recommend him and it seems the ladies at the office all go to him and think he's the best.
Oprah has a new chai at Starbucks and I was losing sleep over the fact that I was not going to get my drink...the same.... like I have had it for three years. Turns out that at the Starbucks I go to will keep both.
Katie says, "You don't like change do you?"
"No". Say I.
"Why would they change it?" I cry.
"Because they think you will like it." Says my little wise one.
"Oh. That's true." Says the real baby in the family.
I love that little girl. She is smart and funny and very lovable.
Thanks for stopping by!
