Your favorite clothing item is what you call your "ladybug sweatshirt" this is your 3rd one in 4 years. Your first one was a gift from a friend. It was a size 12-18 month....then you moved up to a 2T....this time i decided to go BIG...really HUGE.....a size 5T. it's huge on you but you will have this one for a long time.
she is the sweetest child i've ever met. she loves everyone. she cares for everyone. her heart goes out to everyone. she is the face of compassion.
XO XO i love her so much.
el "pearl my family day was really good wasn't it?"
pearl "yes it was fun"
we ended up eating at a local mexican restaurant not waffle house. thank goodness this food snob mom was happy about this last minute change.
