"Let's stay here forever," she said.
We had made a tent out of a quilt on top of my bed, and hid inside, light from the window made all my favorite colors. And her words meant the world. And that she said them right then, there was no doubt she was just like me.
One day Ivy came up to me so sad, with bottom lip out and she said, "Mom, I really wish I were a mermaid."
So I knit her a tail and she wore it to bed, and she even wore it to grandma's. And earlier when she brushed her teeth the fin peeked out from around the bathroom door.
She learned to walk up and down the stairs, holding the tail beside her. If you want anything bad enough, you figure out a way.
Did you know how many things you can make and spell with party beads?
