First of all, I am severely lacking in hair. But it feels kind of amazing. My friend ARES is a cosmetology student -- and she's amazing, might I add! -- and she cut my hair for me. Thinned it out a little and added some layers, too. When she gets her license she is totally going to kick some serious ass in the beauty world. And I get to blog about her awesome before anyone else! My hair looks really nice and healthy and the cut feels funny, but in a good way. I la-la-love it! (No photos because my laptop is broken and I can't upload digital camera photos onto this old bucket of bolts -- that I love nonetheless -- we call the family pc.)
Secondly, seeing ARES means seeing Diego and their son; they're my favourite little family. I love them. And my godson is brilliant. He's all of two (and a half!) and he sang the alphabet to me. His speech is clear with a hint of a lisp (thix??? six?!) and he is just the most darling little boy I have ever been blessed to meet. We were in the car earlier and he haughtily demanded a book! A book. This is a kid who enjoys his literature! My joy, it can't be contained in mere words. My godson is my little hero, and I feel so blessed to be a part of his life, however distant I may be. ARES has been told he might be a genius. I think he is. He's sweet as cherries and he loves to give kisses! He's going to be a heartbreaker when he's old enough to date. He already had girls fighting over him when he was playing at the playground with his dad, I heard!
I've never been good with kids. No patience. But goodness if my godson doesn't bring me a whole lot of joy. And I spent all of a half-hour in the car with him. Imagine if I got stuck with him an hour! He'd have me wrapped around his tiny pinky, that's for sure!
Lastly, I won .maitai's CNStores Giveaway! Exciting! I'm really thinking about what I should buy, and I'm torn between shoes -- boots or heels? I'll keep pondering...meanwhile, thank you, .mai, for creating the giveaway in the first place! :)
That's all, folks! Back to the depths of real life I go!
