Here's the story. I start lots more posts than I publish. There are a lot posted today that are now completely out of order. What a pain! But! I have a funny little anecdote to ease our pain:
Lucy came home from school this past week saying that
a boy had "a major crush" on her. This made me a little
uncomfortable... I tried to reroute her storytelling into
"this boy did something funny," not absolute certainty
that he was smitten by her irresistable charms...
"But Mom," she said, "You didn't hear how he said it!"
"He was combing through my hair with his fingers and he said, 'You're beaaaauuutiful.'"
For the record, this is how irresistably beautiful Lucy's hair was that day.
