bella came into the kitchen twirling in her dress before leaving for her homecoming dance. we had some people over at the house, namely alex's middle-school soccer team and a few of their parents. some of the adults were complimenting bella's dress and hair. a few of the boys may have future chiropractic issues for all the hidden craning of their necks to get a better look at alex's older sister. the only thing i did was repeatedly ask bella if she was afraid that one or both of her breasts were going to fall out of that curiously placed hole in her dress. starting each of her responses with an 'oh father' she assured me her breasts were fully secured on the inside of her dress and that no, the hole was not put there on accident.
