Brand new cords

I’m still recovering from Black Friday – and I even did a good job of it, with only 90 minutes of actual contact with the real world.

Sierra Picture Day was yesterday. But you get your picture today: our darling daughter showing off her new corduroys and shirt.

Sierra's new outfit

If there’s anything I’ve learned about becoming a parent, it’s that guys get a chance to live out any closet dress-up desires they had when they were younger. I mean, it simply wasn’t acceptable as boys to play with dolls. Those feelings were repressed. But now, they’re required – in fact, you get in trouble if you don’t take part in clothing your child.

So yeah, I thought the cords were cute. I picked them out.

Maybe I’m saying too much.
