Four minutes of yesterday

Highschool bus pulls up. Juliana hops off, lightly.

AM: "Awe, hi honey-your bag looks so cute with that jacket! How was school?"
J-A: "Uhh...okay. Thanks. School was good"
AM: "Seriously, that is so cool, I can't believe you didn't like it at first, you did a perfect job. Let's take a picture real quick before I take Bela to dance"
J-A: "Hang on, I'm hungry"

Juliana slices of a giant piece of breakfast pastry while Anna dashes for the camera, checking the battery level. Dang. Of course. Puts the rechargeables in their charger and digs through the kitchen drawer for two more.

AM: "Put that sticky thing down and com'ere. Okay just be natural and pretend like you just got off the bus."
J-A: " I did just get off the bus."

Juliana mocks with a slowmotion walk up the front stairs.

AM: "Oh this first one is perfect. Okay that's good. Let's go have a look"
J-A: "Man I look like a stringbean"
AM: "Geesh, you do. You need to eat more Juliana"
J-A: "MOM! I was trying to have schnecken and you made me take a picture. I like it"
AM: "The schnecken?"
J-A: "No. The picture!"
AM: "Oh good, we'll use it. Go eat."

  2. Cute bag, cute girl. I'm wondering how old she is, but I don't know if you're comfortable saying. . .
