1 Tuff Chick

As long as I can remember, The Girl has been one tuff little chick.  If she gets hurt, she cries for maybe a minute and then she's done.  She moves on.  She doesn't milk it or dwell.  (Unlike her male counterpart.  Ugh.)

A day or two before her second birthday she slipped off the arm of the couch and smacked face first into the corner of that table in the picture.  That was the fastest bruise I've ever seen!  I swear it was instant.  And it stuck around for, no joke, more than three months.  And to this day, three years later, her face creases in that spot when she smiles. 

How cute are those chick and mushroom (strip lain over the ribbon) papers? They're from an 8-pack I got in the Target Dollar Spot!!!  So cute!!!  Some of the sheets are glittery, some are glossy.

This layout is based on today's Sketchy Thursdays sketch.  Love it!!!

Be sure to stop by the blog to check out what amazing inspiration the DT has cooked up for you.  And, trust me, you're going to want to check out the prize.  (OK, twist my's a set of Copics!)

So, today my Attitude of Gratitude entry is I am thankful for how tuff my little girl is.  She may whine and complain and pull the princess card about trivial things but when the tough stuff arises, when she really gets genuinely hurt, she's a trooper.  And trust me, this is a good thing because I swear the child leads with her face.
