I think we’ll keep her


I just had to post this picture, taken not thirty minutes ago.

That child is only six, ladies and gentlemen! And just barely that (her birthday was October 28th). As you can see, she did not get her two front teeth for Christmas this year (though she doesn’t do too badly saying “Sister Susie sitting on a thistle” for all of that). That’s a total of six teeth lost already, in case anyone’s counting. I just pulled up a picture of her taken this past summer and almost plotzed when I compared it to this photo. Her hair’s grown a good 2.5″ since then and between that and the missing front teeth it’s amazing how much younger she looked only five months ago. I swear, I feel like I’m going to go to bed tonight, wake up tomorrow and she’ll be graduating high school. Old….I feel old, people.
Nevertheless, we like her very much, holey grin and freakish maturity and all. She’s a good kid.


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
