    Marlo looks like she is channeling 1980′s Madonna!

    The outfits – so much like my daughter. She’s ten now and has eased up a lot on insisting on things being just so every day, but she still works it on special occasions! Also, she does a far better job of creating coherent outfits now, and she wants to help select clothes for me when we go shopping. So, yeah, the flair for fashion demands improved, but they won’t go away. HAVE FUN WITH THAT.

    Looks like Cami to me…

    I still remind my daughter that we told her she was a changeling :) Evil, evil people.

    Many traits blew right past me from my mother to her. I called them the bookends. And they loved it when they showed up at a gathering wearing color coordinated outfits – without communicating ahead of time.

    I’ve been thinking that for a while! Marlo clearly imprinted on Cami and is fabulous already.

    I had a quick growth spurt between fifth and sixth grades but remained The Shortest and I continue to be so. My brother, however, steadily grew and was taller than me by the time I was in high school. He’s now 6’3″ and 25 and still my little baby brother. I still wear the sweatpants he wore for, like, a month in middle school before he outgrew them.

    If there was a street fight between a leprechaun and Marlo – My money is on the kid.

    I really need to know what the public school curriculum teaching on leprechauns is too. My seven year old daughter spent Monday night building a leprechaun trap and then came racing up the stairs Tuesday morning looking for signs that one had been there and caused mischief (no one had of course, but she took solace in a book being in a different place than it had been the night before and she thought she saw a little glitter on the kitchen counter.) I can do Christmas, and Easter, and I’ve only forgotten the tooth fairy once, but Leprechauns too?
