auntie jo has launched ellie into a little girl rite of passage with the gift of her first barbie. oh-so-appropriately, she is "teacher barbie." teacher barbie sat in her box for a couple of days while i worked up the courage to introduce tiny barbie shoes to my list of things for which to be responsible. i tried just hiding the shoes and telling ellie she didn't have shoes. um, no. she knew there were shoes. black ones. high heels. so, this morning, in honor of the starts of spring break, we broke teacher barbie out. shoes and all.
Aiming for progress, not perfection.
