magnetgirl: It’s parent-teacher conference week so yesterday afternoon Aeris was with me at work. She decided to reorganize my top drawer and I must say it’s the least cluttered it’s ever been. Prior to putting on her Pepper Potts hat (should I say heels?) we did her homework which entailed her reading a book… <3 THIS KID. Seriously. Best one.
