you hated this borrowed peacock costume when we tried putting it on you for halloween. but now, you squeal in delight “PEE-CAULK” when you see it in its hiding place and won’t relent until we zip you up inside it. you were feeling quite under the weather yesterday, but getting dressed up in your finest feathers seemed to give you some reprieve from your sluggishness. you chased our chickens around the yard and they, more than ever, had no idea what to do with you.
i love you. love, mama.
