Cranky Complaints-Lady Buys BOOKS! (or tries to)

Presenting! Naomi's Birthday Present!

Finally got Naomi Rivka to try on the leotard part of the ballet costume present I lovingly, painstakingly handcrafted for her.

I feel so sad because she looks like such a little princess, trapped in the dingy plastered-together horror of our kitchen.

She really does look like she deserves a better world than this laundry-strewn masking-taped place she's growing up in. But at least she has a homemade ballet dress!

I couldn't get her to put on the ballet shoes, by the way. And then I got busy with something else and turned around to see her running around the house in the slippers. Ha! And me without my camera, by that point. Isn't that always the way?
