the smell of my desperation has become a stench


Friday night we took Leta to see Mary Poppins at The Capitol Theater, and we had one of the best times we’ve ever had with her. The show lasted waaaaaay past her bedtime, and she was starting to fade at the start of the second act, but she pulled through. The above is similar to what I wore because I wanted it to be a special night. No workout clothes or flip-flips.

On the ride home she moaned from the back seat, “You better hurry because I’m falling asleep!”
