I just costumed the whole family for a Harry Potter-themed Halloween party. (Adam's wearing the Sirius Black prison shirt you gave me, Spooky!)

Most of the plaid skirts I wore in high school?

Are too small on my twelve-and-a-half-year-old daughter.


1. I'm not ready for my daughter to be high-school-sized.
2. This really brings my high school body issues into sharp relief. Elayna is short, yes, but developmentally, proportionally, she has a slender, healthy-weight body. To see her struggling to button my old skirts... hell. How skinny *was* I? I don't know that I'll ever know. I didn't allow myself to be photographed back then. But... yeah. Unhealthy.

Elayna, of course, finds this hilarious. Because she doesn't grok #2. I find it alternately amusing and disturbing. :)
