Jenna has worn earrings almost everyday since collecting them “from grandma” but I think the novelty has worn off.
There are girls at school who see her earrings and wish they had earrings too – even if they are the ear-pinching clip-ons or twists. Parting with her earrings has not been a big problem – especially when there is one who is trading her for marbles – well, that’s what Jenna calls them. To me, they look like the shiny rocks that go into bottles or vases or line the bottom of the fish tank. But Jenna loves them. She sorts them in the same manner that she has always done with rocks.
Yesterday Roland called to see how we were both doing. I informed him that Jenna had gone to school. He asked why and I told him I thought it was mostly for the earring/marble exchange. He laughed. Yes, now there’s an important reason to go to school.
