We Share DNA

While I realized that today was Friday the 13th, I did not realize that it had any particular significance since I really do not believe in luck. Apparently I did not get the memo that Sweetness received. She bounded out of bed with unusual enthusiasm this morning blathering something about it being dress-up day. She decided it was a good enough excuse to dress as wacky as possible. Her Friday the 13th celebratory outfit consisted of (Lulu and CP will know exactly what I am talking about) my old "waif/Laura Ingalls" plaid dress, argyle tights with a patterned purple sock on just one leg, a very graphic intensive hoodie and turquoise Chucks. As she came bounding down the stairs to go to middle school, she raised her arms and declared, "Let the teasing begin!" I have *no idea* how she turned out this way........

She turned out that way because you somehow gave birth to my child.

That is awesome!

Friday the 13th has always been a happy and lucky day around our house, but I've never seen it celebrated with such verve.

It's nice to hear about a middle-school girl with such enthusiasm, since that's usually the age where school and peer groups really seem to conspire to suck the life out of young women.

You're obviously doing a good job!

Your daughter is freakishly cool.

Gotta love her attitude. My mom once won $500 in a church lottery, just divine.
