He got the short straw that day. And we got our third beautiful daughter.
During a school wide chapel assembly, Alice piped up to inform the principal that it was her birthday. I told him that she was definitely a different character than her sisters. We do need diversity in life, and we've got it in our family of girls.
Prompted by the chapel incident (after which the whole school sang Happy Birthday to her), I thought I'd interview Alice.
Me: Alice, are you shy?
Alice: A little bit.
Me: How much is a little?
Alice: 2 pinches
Me: Alice, are you smart?
Me: How smart are you?
Alice: 150 pinches.
Me: Alice, are you cute:
Alice: Yes, you know I am.
Me: How cute are you?
Alice: 159 pinches!
Me: Alice, are you humble?
Alice: What's humble mean?
She has plenty of time in life to learn humility. There's no rush, but I thought her answers were interesting. 2 pinches shy vs. 159 pinches cute.
That's about right actually. :-)
I couldn't get a picture of Alice without Cheetos residue on her face during her party, but this is how beautiful she looked in September.
I'd say that's 159 pinches cute.
Happy birthday, cutie!
