the smell of my desperation has become a stench

So wonderfully four

Last Saturday the afternoon temperature reached 70 degrees (a hint I should have taken that it would begin snowing the following morning). That’s why Marlo is wearing this. And why she changed into and out of approximately 14 different outfits that day. Those pen marks on her face are mascara, or as she so adorably calls it “masthcara.” She saw me applying it to Leta on Halloween and I guess she decided she didn’t want to be left out of all that fun. When I pointed out that mascara goes on eyelashes she blithely responded with, “I know that.”

I don’t think “makeup artist” is in the cards for her future.
