What did my baby have?
Well, an older brother and sister, mainly. And sometimes their lessons were, shall we say, offbeat. Perhaps that is why in this pic, when everyone is looking one way at the National Honor Society induction, my baby is looking off the beaten path.
And sometimes, she gets a little distracted.
But that doesn't mean she's not smart. Every day she gets letters from colleges who want
Can you imagine?
So anyway, her daddy was traveling and had to miss the induction. But here I am pinning her and hugging her, two of my favorite past times. That is, sometimes, if I let her mercilessly stick me with a pin, she will relent and let me give her a one-second hug. It's a pretty good trade-off, I think.
Oh my Baby. You are so sweet and cute. I could not love you one bit more. You will always have a very special place in my heart. Some time, like in the year 2040, you may actually like to read those words. Until then, I know you hate it.
I'll probably have to pay for these pics and that mush at the end, but it's easier to ask forgiveness than permission.
Just wait until she sees that I wrote about her texting in my newspaper column this week: 6,000 messages.
She can't help it. Smart girls have lots of words they need to use.
Love you, Kristin!
