A Chandy Fit For A Widdle Girl...

My daughter has a dormer window in her bedroom. It has transformed from diaper toxic changing station to reading nook to it's current state- the tea party. 
While digging through the clearance shelf at Target, pronounced "tar-jaay", I found this mini-chandy for $9.99. As the big girl decorators say, "it is the inspiration piece!"





This piece of plastic junk has given light to many deep sister conversations. ("I tink da moon is bootiful...do you?")
It has seen it's share of sister tiffs. (Do.not.put.Skittles.in.my.teacup.AGAIN!")



When I pull into the driveway and see this light shining on my girl's silhouettes,  I smile. I'm home.

  16. I really miss having a little girl. It seems almosts surreal to me to be splitting a bottle of wine with my little girl and saying things like, "are you buzzed at all? I don't think there's any alcohol in here." Yeah.
    Anyway, new house stalker--this one will surprise you.
