cat and oranges


cat and oranges

These oranges are special. They are the first grocery item that Olivia ever brought into our home without us asking her to get something. Not a snack for just her, but real food, that she bought--for everyone. This is big.

Yes, she's 17, and yes she happens to work part time at a grocery store, so I guess it's about time. It just surprised me to realize that maybe something shifted. Maybe the earth does revolve around the sun and not our oldest. The sweetest of oranges, she's growing up.
