Are Mermaids Real?

"Are mermaids real Aurora? "  That's what I asked her since I had never seen one.  " Of course they are real Grammie.  I've seen one at the lake".     

The talk today was all about mermaids because we made Aurora a mermaid outfit.     She helped me by measuring and pinning.    

Now that's a big tail.   Aurora is helping
to put pins in both sides of the tail.
I will do the stitching.

After a couple of fittings, here she is.
Mermaid Aurora with her new tail and top.  
You know, mermaids have a unique set of problems.    This mermaid has to lift her tail to her knees, and then walk like a penguin to get anywhere.   That's why mermaids prefer to swim.   Way easier!!!

She's the cutest mermaid I've seen in a long while. Now there'll be reports of mermaid sightings at Grand Lake in the paper....
