Granny Kate's Mirror
Today would've been my Granny Kate's 94th birthday! Harper Kate is named after her. Granny was FEISTY! and SPUNKY! and SASSY! And, so is my daughter. Granny Kate would watch Golden Girls with me and explain the slut jokes. Granny Kate taught me how to flip the bird.

When Grandma sold her house, I got her hand mirror. It always sat in a basket in her bathroom that had her curlers in it. It even has a smudge of the pink that her bathroom was
Recently, Harper found it. It was tucked away in a cupboard, and she found it. She is fascinated with it. Not so much with the reflection, but the mirror. I re-hide it, and she finds it again. I try to take it away and she gets MAAADDD!
So, weird, and not so weird, right? I guess the piss-and-vinegar will carry on through yet another generation. And that's just fine with me!
Happy Birthday, Grandma! We miss you and love you every single day!
