Look ’round your home. If you have a daughter, you have a mermaid. A beautiful, lovely creature who’s sometimes unsure of where she fits in. She is playful like the seal, but can be stormy like the sea. She adores her sparkling fin but pines for shoes. She is bold as the barracuda, when she’s not ‘hermitting’ within a vacated shell. She cherishes her hair, but would trade it to save the world.
My little mermaid above, and my other little mermaid below.
Thank you. May you dream of swimming with dolphins and whales upon a sparkling sea…

hey that looks like me with my red hair, but in the mornings….only she’s prettier. x
Excellento, AnnMarie! Both of your mermaids are sweet! 🙂
Thank you Debra 🙂
I’ll take the one who cleans her room better 😉
This is so lovely (:
Thank you for your generous words 🙂
I live with three mermaids…two just at the training level and one full-grown swimmer. They take special understanding as they learn to navigate stormy seas. – Fawn
You have honest to goodness, swimming mermaids!
I’m sure with you at the helm – their navigating skills are perfected 🙂
Hope you’re feeling well
You’ve caught the essence of a girl perfectly! Beautiful!
My little mermaid was the inspiration –

I think of my almost 8 years old g’daughter that way. She is wildly adventurous, curious, protective of her territory, and swims like a mermaid. 🙂 They are a beauty to behold. Blessings, Lydia
She sounds like a beautiful little treasure 🙂
Delightful!! I love my little mermaids so much!! (How did you get yours to clean her room, though) Sigh. 😀
Unfortunately, my mermaid needs a housemaid. She is a Slob with a very capital S!
