Went to visit neighbour A and say congratulations to her daughter who graduated High School and this was the picture Meg thought up. Ummmm honey? It's R's day, not yours.
What is Meg staring at? Can't quite make it out? How about a close up:
Nope. Not fake. She has a safety pin skewered through her cheek. This is our babysitter. She really is a very sweet and quite responsible kid. Just questionable taste in accessorising. And more holes in her than a sieve at the moment.... Meg is very taken by it. She asked K when she can have piercings, too. K about fainted. Amy was concerned it must hurt and asked if it was for pinning on her name tag?
I've known R since she was in grade 6 with a cheeky grin, long black hair and a heavy fringe. I look at my kids and think time flies but I look at the changes in R and WOW! the years from 12-18 are pretty massive, huh?
She finished High School, bought a car and has got a full time job with all the benefits (quite the catch in this economy) at a local pachinko parlour so it will be interesting to see if the piercings last past April 1 and the start of her life as a working woman.
