3.) May lead to deceiving MySpace photos.


4.) Six-year-olds need makeup on to feel pretty.

Isabella was great- didn't y'all love the "I'm WEIRD!!!" Me too, honey.

Her mom seemed to have her head on pretty straight- and she seemed to take an honest delight in her charming, remarkable, smart weird kid.

One of the best parts was Isabella announcing her equally fabulous brother on air guitar live from Bunk Bed Theater. He rocked it OUT. I would totally TIVO a reality show featuring just these two kids doing whatever they do all day while their mother beams in the background.
