Our trip to the dollar store

Originally uploaded by Julie H.
My five-year-old daughter had a dollar to spend, and out of the whole store, she chose this. The, um, angel is sitting on the bicycle seat while stark naked; in back you can see the butt crack quite clearly. She says she chose this because the golden, um, halo reminds her of her grandfather who passed away three years ago. Not that she was making a connection between angels and dead grandfathers. Oh no. Here's the connection: Grandpa John was a University of Michigan football fan. UM's colors are maize and blue. Maize, gold. Grandpa John, halo. Oh, how I love that kid!
