I *love* this little girl
This little sweet thing is my youngest. I don't know if I've ever met anybody who loves life more than her. I'm telling you she is one crazy child from the things she wears to the way she wears her hair - she fixed it herself in the above photo. I probably failed to mention that she yet, again, cut a chunk out of her hair last week. It's become so common place that I forget to share it with people anymore. She begged me to shave it off like I did her older brother's hair. When I offered to take her to the beauty shop to get it in a bob, she declined saying she wanted very long hair now.
Today she has been carrying around a boom box (do they still call them that?) around with her from room to room listening to Weird Al Yankovich. Her favorite song is one called Jurassic Park that she knows all the words to and one day I'll catch her on video singing at the top of her lungs. Her second favorite that I've heard 40 times today is Bohemian Polka; it's Bohemian Rhapsody sung to a polka beat and let me tell you from experience, it can grow a little tiring.
I can have her showered and "super shiny clean", as my redhead would say, and within 5 minutes she will look like she's been dragged through the woods by a pack of wolves. She climbs onto the counters looking for candy or snacks in the upper cabinets and if she can't find anything, she'll grab a spoon and eat sugar directly out of the bag.
She drives me crazy sometimes, but I'm so glad she's my daughter. She truly keeps me on my toes and makes life FUN. Plus, she gives the best hugs!
