This little cutie has some good friends in our neighborhood. She loves nothing more than skipping off to play with one - or a bunch! - of them. Unfortunately, one of them is moving this week. It's a travesty, to be sure. We went shopping to our swanky neighborhood dollar store to get some little gifts for her. And since we were there, we needed to get presents for the other friends, too. If you give a girl a gift, you know...
She is a girly girl, and loves to wear fluffy skirts and twirly dresses. She is drawn to sparkly hairbows and anything pink. Her brothers worry that she will be a princess, but I don't. I was an only girl in the middle of a bunch of brothers, too. I'm having a good time helping her grow up. This is her favorite skirt, which I think pairs very nicely with the tomboy bruises on her shins.
She had to write a love to to her friend, with her very best handwriting and lots of crossing out of misspelled words. She loves to write and draw. As she looked at the card, she exclaimed, "Oh I love periods. They are so fun!"
What a cute girl. I'll bet she'll never say that again.
