Could I believe it was raining this morning, August 31st, the first day of school? Well, it's somewhat plausible. Could I believe my firstborn lovechild was heading off to 2nd grade? Heck no!!!!
However, I was pleased she woke up in a great mood, made her bed, got dressed in her "first day" outfit, and got her things in order all without being asked. If you ask me, this kid should have been born in the mid-70's like me so she could have been in school in the 80's, also like me. Many of you know she's responsible for bringing back the side-ponytail last year, and as you can see, her current style is very 80's inspired. If she were only old enough for that pastel pink lipstick I too coveted at her age! She's a doll and I hope you'll say a little prayer for her as she navigates the world of friendship ups and downs, academic achievements and challenges, and learning to make her own decisions despite what others are doing. Have fun Charlotte!!!
