Oh, Sure.

I can't remember exactly where we were when the conversation took place, but in my brain, I remember we were shopping...or getting fast food...or waiting in line somewhere...

When I asked my Sweet Sister...

"...do you care if I put Lucy on The Blog...?"

She responded with a simple, "...Oh, sure..."

To be polite.  Maybe?  Like the kind of response you would give when someone asks you if you like their new, hot orange, velvet curtains.

However, "Oh...sure..." was all the permission I needed.

     I cannot tell you how much I love this kid.  I have joked that the only thing I can compare it to is having a crush on a boy.  I think about her all the time.  I just want to be near her. Always.  I can't stop talking about her when I get home from seeing her.  If I had a textbook covered with a brown grocery bag, I'd probably scribble her name all over it (did you guys used to cover your textbooks that way?)   It's ridiculous.  Really.  Is this what it's like to have your own kid?

Really?


So, for you, on This Sunshiney-Late-Summer Saturday...I give you, Mad Scientist Hair.  


Love,
H.
