I dare you to pretend this did not just make you squeal inside.

My "niece" Skylar wore her first ponytail today. This is a monumental occasion. Do you want to know why? Because her mommy e-mailed me and told me so. THIS IS A BIG DAY.

Ponytails are a big deal, you know. Once that hair fits into a ponytail, child, you never have to fuss with it again.

I would kill for this ponytail. Because she is damn happy about it.
