Neither of the girls ever eats cereal. I mean never. And then somehow. Madalyn was possessed. And decided to try MY cereal. Mine. Mine. Mine. Naturally. She loves it. It's like manna from heaven. She likes it for breakfast. Maybe even two bowls. She has it for second breakfast. An afternoon snack. Dessert. All the while referring to it as HER cereal.
Beware! Or celebrate as the case may be. It was for us 14 years ago. So, to celebrate our anniversary, we went out to dinner at Ted's. And then hung out at Barnes and Noble. All sans children. It was a glorious day!
Madalyn is constantly begging me to come and have lunch with her at school. We get to sit at a special table. She can invite a friend. And when the rest of the kids get too loud and have to be quiet, we can keep talking. But I think the whole reason she likes me to come is that I always give her ice cream money.
After looking at Madalyn's nightstand, I thought I'd show you the books on mine. I am reading "World Without End" now. But I am thinking that my wrists will need a break before I start "Under the Dome."
After reading that Barnes and Noble defines "Are you there God, It's me Margaret..." as "iffy" for anyone under 14, I got the book for Madalyn. Who is 8. She has really liked it. Asked lots of questions. (Like: what are loafers?). And has been full of lots of giggles.
My friend Khadija saw the link on facebook for my picture of Madalyn (which by the way is one of my very favorite pictures of Madalyn - so captures HER!). So...she decided that she needed to be my next model. My next photoshop guinea pig. And the subject of her very own feature here at Drops of Sunshine.
I have always loved photography. But truly. I have no idea as to what I am doing. I have the big girl camera. Lots of lenses. Photoshop. All the tools and none of the knowledge. It's a dangerous combination!
