She said she "had a vision" for these Valentines. And really, who was I to argue with that? The awesome button charms were a gift from a friend and Biscuit was able to share one with each classmate in a custom paper and tape pouch.
Before (can we all agree the outfit wins for colorfulness?)
She got a mouthful of braces and a palate expander and she's been a total trooper. It helped she was excited to get the braces (it's pretty cool when you're in second grade) (speaking of which, did anyone other than my friend Lisa and I make "retainers" out of paper clips or gum in elementary school? What were we thinking? paperclips?) Anyway, she's really barely complained about pain or missing out on crunchy/sticky foods.
Mr. H sent me this link to an Onion article. His email was titled, "we are not alone." I thought it was going to be an article about aliens but it turns out our kid is not the only kid very, very, very concerned about death. It's kind of sad to see her so upset but I'll admit to cracking up at the Onion.
Tonight she very seriously told me, "mom, next time it's a time you get presents, like my birthday, I really want more binders. And paper. And manila folders and folders with holes and things you can put in a binder like rulers with holes."
I said, "so basically you want Office Depot for your birthday."
And she agreed, "Office Depot would be perfect."
Funny girl. This is after she took my second-to-last recycled from college binder to fill with important papers.
Mr. H let Biscuit read some (hopefully not all ;) of the blog posts I wrote about her. So perhaps it's time for me to be more circumspect. Expect more Oscar content in the future.
Speaking of him, isn't this photo hilarious?
