Kids and mermaids

Apologies for the dark photos. It's been a long day.
Multi-colored top - ...somewhere in Boston (apologies, probably the one thing in my closet that I'm unsure about), Brown slacks - Express, Sandals - Jeffrey Campbell
There was a bigwig at the office today, so I pulled out the professional slacks. The day was not overly bad, but not so great, and by the time I got home, I just felt wiped. So wiped, I could barely talk at dinner. And when I did, it was in a low monotone of despair. Which was when Child told me my hair was pretty and I looked like a mermaid. Which brightened me up somewhat, mainly because I thought it was funny that when I'm down, Child intuitively knows a compliment will probably turn things around.
Kids say the darndest things, right?
Husband jumped on this bandwagon pretty quickly. "Yep! Just like a mermaid!"


  1. Awwww... what a sweet child and husband. I would love to be a mermaid...b

  2. It was really sweet. Wish my hair would always naturally dry in soft mermaid waves.
