the little darlin' turned five today.
|(fringe boots $21at kohls. because i know you'll ask...)|
she told me she decided to stop sucking her thumb.
the dentist always tries to tell her to stop.
i roll my eyes.
her brothers remind her over and over that the dentist told her to stop.
i tell the boys maybe they should try listening to the dentist for their own teeth instead of their sisters business.
her grandma sent her a wrist corsage to wear to school.
it was completely fancy and amazing for her.
i found this doll at pottery barn kids.
it was something ridiculous like $50 dollars or something.
but this was the last floor model and her head was almost completely off her neck.
so my pal lena helped me bargain her down to $14.97.
i brought her home and stitched her neck up and cleaned her up a bit.
she has blue eyes and a little pink pout and she is clearly an island girl.
sailboats on her dress and a lily in her hair.
we named her ella-lani.
i like a girl who is a little bit run down, but has a good story.
i bet a looooooot of girls played with her at PB kids before she made it to us....
today we had an on open house.
dozens of people have been through the reed home in the last two days.
that's how long its been on the market.
i'm hoping to be in escrow by the weekend.
then we will be.....homeless?
freaky and liberating at the same time.
