never give up

coming out of the closet

the other day, i watched lulu wrestle with a big stool and then finally wrangle it into the front hall closet. but between the wrestle and the wrangle, i asked her what she was doing.

she paused a minute and said, i want to see what it's like to spend some time in the closet.



try some things on.

a little while later i had actually forgotten she was even in there until i heard a muffled,

i'm ready to come out of the closet now.

this much she knows is true

i'm driving the girls home from school, and we're going down a nice street with lots of big, pretty houses.

and lulu says "i'm looking at all these houses" ...

and i think she's gonna say something about how big they are or how pretty they are. but she doesn't.

... "i think we must be the only family with a big silver airstream parked next to their house."


we must be.
