Ye of Little Faith

Mia styled my hair today. It actually turned out quite well, albeit a little fancier than my everyday style. Trying to think of a way to compliment her that wouldn't commit me to wearing multiple braids to work tomorrow, I said "Mia, this is so pretty. Maybe next time I go on a date you could style my hair for me!"

"Sure," she responded. "I'll be a lot older by then, so I'll be even better at doing hair."

Sigh.

The List, Jr.

Last night during a rollicking pre-bedtime game of Truth or Dare I asked my olders what qualities they thought were most important in the man they hoped to marry someday. After a brief discussion defining the term "qualities" they jumped right on board.

Grace's List:
  1. Smart
  2. Brave
  3. Happy
  4. Brave (did I already say that one?)
  5. Impressive ("what does that mean, Grace?" "I think it means cool")
  6. Strong
  7. Chubby. Wait, I mean, skinny. No....Chubby. No, actually, yeah--skinny. Like me.
Mia's List:
  1. Luc
  2. as (get it, mom? Like, Luc-as? Hahahaha. Editorial note: don't ask.)
  3. Strong muscles
  4. very good at swimming (Grace: "Argh! I should have said 'lifeguard' on mine!!!")
  5. smells very good
  6. wears boy undies and not girl undies
I think I have nothing to add to this conversation.

Optimism

I repainted my bedroom. Love it. I added this section of vinyl lettering (which is not slanted, in spite of what the weird photo shows) because I just like it so much.

This is not an announcement. It's just optimism.
