She's an amazing little thinker.
Do you know how much rice I've eaten in my life?
We had it for dinner the other night, a side dish. I mentioned rice-a-roni, we were eating the chicken flavored variety.
Rice-a-roni? She asked, sounding baffled.
Yes, that's what it's called. I told her.
Wow, she told me. It's like mac-a-roni.
Do you know, I've never - ever - made that connection? Do you know how many boxes of the stuff I've eaten, how many years the San Francisco treat jingle was stuck in my head?
She has me turn my head every day...and look at the world from her angle.
"Hey. My name's Sarina. I came all the way from Africa. I was a cowgirl there and helped my dad weather in the horses." (What the?)
Playing Barbies is so much fun! Especially when Sarina joins the party.
Buzz and Woody are always good for a laugh. Ken is usually just sleeping it off.
Good times, I tell you.
A little time away is all it takes to see how good it is here. How much fun we can have on the floor, playing dolls together. A little time away, and I've got my perspective back. Thank goodness for that!
