I blame my mother for this.
If you think it's a little overboard for one child to have so many bows and cute girly shoes, well then, I've gone overboard. But you're going to really flip when you find out that I want to pierce her ears. And before you lecture me about it, just remember that I'm cited as a reference in a book about the dangers of piercing.
You might as well tell someone straight out, "You look like crap today." That's what they really mean when they say you look tired. And yes, I know I look tired. I am.
