cruel, crewel world
This last weekend, when I asked Noni to run upstairs and put on something cozy. She returned with a bounce in her step and lots of sparkling clothing. She was wearing bobby socks, pink spangled mary janes, a silver and white sequined costume halter top - as a mini dress - cut up to there and down to her navel. She also had something in her hair that gave her mall bangs - very retro 80's. She looked like Little Orphan Annie. But this orphan didn't have a Daddy Warbucks and she'd had to make her way in the world as a stripper.
Isn't that what every mother dreams of for their 6 year old daughter?
(Just a moment - I've got to put my head between my knees and breath deeply before I hyper ventilate!)
OK. I think I've worked through this one. Now, let's get ready for her teen age years! Wahooo!
