Rites of spring

I often post whinging humorous stories about my daughter, and when I meet blog-readers in real life, the most frequent comment that I hear is "I love your stories about your daughter!" Apparently there's one in every family.

However, humorous stories aside, I adore my daughter and wouldn't want her to be any way other than herself. This weekend I will show you her softer side, as she performed in her ballet recital:






She was in such a good mood that when her twin brother photobombed her


she was all "Lady Bountiful" and refrained from smacking him down like the hand of God.

Later, as we were enjoying celebratory water ice, she opined about Alanis Morisette's "Isn't It Ironic" thusly: "Rain on your wedding day is SO not ironic, unless you're marrying a weatherman."

UPDATE: Since I know certain people like when I include photos of my husband....

Just because someone drives you NUTS, it doesn't mean they aren't wonderful ...

For the title alone, I became a devoted follower of your blog...and the comment about your daughter being Lady Bountiful made me snarf my morning cuppa.....I have Starbucks in my sinuses now, but it was worth it....very funny!

Jill, every so often I run into someone who doesn't get the title. It's so disappointing. I mean how could you go through life never hearing someone say "Go shit in your hat"?

I can't even listen to that song without arguing back, "No, it isn't!" so I'm with her.

There used to be a weatherman, back when I lived in Charlotte NC, named Larry Sprinkle. It wouldn't be ironic if it rained on HIS wedding day!
