How to make Lizzy Smile

She asked if she could smile with her mouth closed and I said, "If you possibly can." But since for months she has had a chain in her room counting down the days till Taylor Swift's new album comes out and because in a moment of extreme mother indulgence I bought her the People magazine with Taylor Swift on the cover (the first time I've bought People in my life) she couldn't stop smiling. We went to Target almost as soon as it opened this morning to purchase the Target exclusive album with 6 extra songs and because we love any excuse to go to Target. How do they always manage to fill the store with so many things I didn't know I always needed?

A warning: When I started posting again I said I might post a picture every day. But then I thought better of it. Who really wants to read about the Mitchells every day? But this week we have so much going on with Halloween and Zoe's campaign that I will probably post every day and then some.

Jordan said...

seriously...who doesn't want to read about the Mitchell's everyday!?!?! Love the picture...Lizzy is so cute!

Ditto on reading about the Mitchells everyday. I could definitely go for that. And Lizzy's smile looks fabulous - I looked hard for those braces, and I couldn't really see them. And I LOVE her boots.

Yes, Mollie the braces are hard to see, especially on the top teeth because they are clear--at least the top ones. So you'd think Lizzy wouldn't be so worried about them. Clear braces have been offered at her orthodontist for just 2 months. Lizzy thinks that by the time Will gets braces they'll be invisible. She's probably right.

What kind of mother are you? Buying your daughter a People Magazine. Bill must have died!

I enjoy the daily update, because it makes me laugh and I have to call you immediately.
