I couldn't hardly do a post all about Gabs and not follow it with one all about Ellie Sue, now could I?
Well, this one is for this crazy kid!
I can't tell you how many people we meet say she is just like me. I think it is a hoot that she chose the above book by Norman Vincent Peale on positive living to pose for this pic. She went and put on some reading glasses, her visor, and said, "Hey mom, take a picture of me." And so I did.
This is a moment just before bedtime where she is just cracking herself up. She totally and completely feels that her place at night is smack in the middle of her daddy and me. Period. It, she feels, is not up for negotiation!
In fact, I only get a little sliver of a piece of bed, but this is going to have to change soon. I have not been sleeping well lately at all. Don't tell her. She might kick me out of my own house.
But all in all, this is a very independent, funny, mature and occasionally even kind kid!
She can do just about anything she puts her mind to.
Even those things that some might would consider impossible.
She has her very own sense of style. And insists on picking her own clothes out daily.
And if I am just being honest, many teenagers could take a hint from her. She really DOES have it "going on" when it comes to fashion.
She brings me great pride. This little diva of mine. I am so, so proud to be Ellie's mama.
