This afternoon the girls busted into the dress-up bin. I found them wearing all their dress-up clothes at once, they looked like Heidi in the fields. As Sarah sat yammering on to, I believe, the home's only remaining hermit crab, I reminded Kate of her declaration earlier this week. And I quote: I am done with princesses! I'm really into super heroes now.
At the mention of her edict, Kate looked sadly up at me. "Oh, Katie Lou, " I said, totally taken in, "you don't have to stick with that if you don't want to." She pursed her lips and reached up to me for the Lift & Hug. That move is getting harder and harder because she's growing like a weed, that one. She rested her head on my shoulder and sighed. "I'm going to miss the princesses" she said. Then, after a pause, she squeezed me tight and kissed my shoulder and said "you make me feel happy." At long last, I've discovered my super power.
