A girl, turning seven. Soon.
Finally wearing blue jeans.
Wanting to wear her hair down most days to hide her perfectly perfect ears.
Eating many bowls of spaghetti in a single bound.
Teacher says she is quiet at school. Not shy. Confident, sure of what she wants. But quiet. Nearly invisible sometimes, I think.
Lots of big emotions, still, and wearing them all over her face.
Loves telling jokes, making us laugh.
Unsure and totally sure.
Loves: art, music, poetry, nature, animals.
My oldest, my love, my life.
