the girlchild has been having one hell of a week. i forget sometimes that pre-teen girls are assholes, and that the catty bitchiness begins at about the sixth grade. it's hard to watch her go through it, since i did it once and that was enough, but we're all managing okay. in an effort to make her feel a better, i made up appointments tomorrow for haircuts and manicures. at the local beauty school. though, because i don't just want it to be a fun day out, i want it to be an adventure. will we walk out with all ten fingers? will they make me look like a boy? we'll see!
p.s. i'm keeping it a secret until tomorrow afternoon. i want her to be surprised!
