-girls, girls, girls-

Children don’t need to be taught to suck up, do they?  Last night Avery saw some pictures of me in college and told me, “Mom, you were prettier when you were younger – when your hair was long.”

Malin, realizing the seriousness of insulting another female’s appearance, quickly pipes up with, “I don’t know how you can tell the difference, Avery. She doesn’t look any older.”

Then a little while later, she smiled at me all sweet and grown-up and said, “I just love spoiling my mommy and daddy – with words.”

You don’t have to be familiar with the term “internet cafe” in order to create your own.

Excited to have a new “camp staff kid” around.

The night a shrinky-dink-making party spontaneously upgraded to a dress-up tea party.

About ruthie.voth

Wife of one, mother of four, friend of many. Lover of details, color, good conversations, finding balance, and being honest. Passionate lover of a well-crafted sentence - even more so if it's witty. Weird blend of cynical optimist. I'm the worst kind of woman. I'm high maintenance, but I think I'm low maintenance. Somehow, people still love me. Must be grace.
