this morning, lillie and grae left bright and early to grab first picks from their school's book fair. lill gleefully announced that she had twenty-five dollars tucked away in her secret hiding place.
i asked, where's your secret hiding place? five panicked minutes later, she found it. i am still cringing.
i'll bet you fifty anythings she comes home with twenty-five bookmarks.
i gave grae ten gold dollar coins. she refused. said she was certain they wouldn't work.
i said, if they don't work, then we're not in america. this. is. you. ess. currency.
five panicked minutes later, lillie traded her for a twenty. she thought the gold coins were cool. said they made her feel like a leprechaun.
i am still cringing.
lillie's attitude is awesome, isn't it? i like that girl a lot. i think she's going to be a great woman someday. this one's my fave colleen baran ring. it reads, in part, i think you are perfect and i love love and you see me and you make me giddy. perfect for my lillie kate. as found on a little hamster.
