My favorite girl-child munchkin gives us her dramatic interpretation of how she feels when you take her sunshine away.
I just spent a smashing long weekend with the family, enjoying a spate of relaxation and porch-sitting, leisurely country walks, tours of several local greenhouses, a dance recital, and a graduation party (my brother is a newly minted MBA, soon to be an even bigger Captain of Industry).
Notwithstanding my niece's excellent performance, I believe the recital is best described as tweeners accompanied by power ballads. It was three hours long. Otherwise, the weekend was endless fun and chock full of family bonding.
