Most everyone knows that the names you see here are not our real names.
I took a page out of Pioneer Woman's playbook when I first started this blog four years ago.
I have since outed all our real names.
Strangely, I still blog with the names I chose for my family members.
In fact, my niece, Sarah (her real name) and my sister, Nora (formerly known as Jean) have begun calling me by my blog name: CeeCee.
This post isn't supposed to be about names, real or not, it's supposed to be about Jenna (formerly known as Pearl).
I took a picture of her sleeping the other day.
She uploaded the pictures off our shared camera and promptly deleted the picture of herself sleeping.
She said she "...looked terrible! Why did you want a picture of me sleeping, anyway!?"
Funny how we see things so differently.
I thought she looked beautiful, napping there on the couch after a hard day at school.
I was going to blog about how beautiful she is, inside and out.
I was going to blog about how funny she is and how proud I am of her.
I was going to blog about what a great artist she is.
I was going to blog about how even if she weren't my daughter, I'd want to hang out with her and have her as a friend.
Now I can't, because she deleted the picture of herself sleeping on the couch.
Instead I'll just have to post her latest piece of art.
Silly Jenna Pie.
That's her newest nickname by the way.
It was given to her by Sarah's daughter, Bella, just a few days ago.
The very same day I took the picture.
