The Shy and Petite Elf

Posted by mwallach on September 28, 2012 in My Kids

Dear That’s Life, I have been called a lot of things over the years, some of which I can put in print and some of which I cannot. Either way, no matter what someone has said, I have never been referred to as “shy” nor have I been called “petite” and certainly not “dainty”. Leave [...]
