shake rattle and roll

now that we're almost into july it's time to talk about may, naturally. two cute little girls had a dance recital and were darling and got to wear makeup, REAL makeup and "mom, i look so beautiful. i look like a princess." her brother recalls of the event, "she looked like a dolphin!" because, to clarify, "dolphins are so beautiful with makeup on."




then, my little slugger graduated from preschool with all the pomp and circumstance that i love. one of the (high school student) teachers expressed to me sincerely, "he's a handful but he's great if you can just get him to focus!" which is what i say everyday through my tears. just kidding but no i'm serious.



we do occasionally brush pearl's hair.

I came to your blog to read the list of movies and series below and was pleasantly surprised with a new post!

Dance recitals and tights and uncombed hair are all reasons that I hope to have a girl someday. Preferably one with Pearl's personality and looks.

Milo is such a good kid. I see him in a cap and gown just like that at the Marriott Center someday. :)

And by the way, from not knowing anything about where Pearl and Nora take dance lessons I love them already because they choose poodle skirts for dance recital costumes instead of black sparkly tutus and bustiers.

What beautiful pictures! You are so good at capturing the moment. I can laugh and cry with you. Oh the things... from all 4 of mine. I had a primary teacher once say to me, trying to praise me, really, "Oh, Michele, you are an amazing woman. You have him everyday." She really was trying to be nice so I had to take it for what it was, but...laugh and cry; it is what i love about little boys. We occasionally hang the jolly roger outside the house and I am tired at the end of every day.
