Violet and Pixie   Leave a comment

For the past week my niece Pixie has been in town –she’s my brother Matt’s 3 year old daughter. She and Violet have been hanging out; they’re crazy about each other — pretending to be sisters. My mother got them matching dresses that they wear together everyday, even though they’re kind of filthy and tired looking. Violet is pretty big for her age and Pixie is rather small, but Pixie calls all the shots. Violet is so compliant with Pixie; she’s not like that with anyone else. And little Pixie has kind of a gruff young-Tatum O’Neill in Paper Moon voice.

Today at the playground they kind of reminded me of George and Lennie in Of Mice and Men. (I know, I know Violet is a genius, it was just a thought…)
