I used to be the mom who told my kids that they had to be gushing blood before I'd ever break out the bandaids. Yup, I was tough as nails. Now just look at me. I'm giving bandaids to a kid who bit the inside of her cheek. But have you ever heard Sweet Terror scream? If you have you would have given her the bandaid too. Heck, I'd cover her entire face with bandaids if I had to in order to keep her quiet. Don't judge me, just pity me.
And look, I actually managed to get her hair all up into piggy tails for a whole 2 minutes!!! I made sure to document the occasion before they could be ripped out in a fit of tears.

A Girl of the Limberlost by Gene Stratton Porter: one of my all time favorite books. It's a simple, sweet story of a girl who fights for what she wants and by staying pure and true to herself and others she gets all she deserves by the end. It's a true happy ending. If you've ever seen the TV version it is not the same thing. I can't stand the TV version they made of this.
