Little voice belonging to Morning Star:
Me: What is it Dear?
Morning Star: Come outside.
Morning Star: I want to show you something.
Me: But Mommy's cooking dinner right now.
Morning Star: But I want to show you something in the garden.
Me: What's in the garden that mommy needs to see RIGHT NOW?
Morning Star: Mommy you need to see it.
Me: What is it?
Morning Star: There is a dolphin in your garden, Mommy.
Me: REALLY!!! ( I live in the high desert, 100's of miles from an ocean.)
A DOLPHIN IN MY GARDEN??
NOW, THIS I HAVE GOT TO SEE.
(dinner can indeed wait.)
I allow Morning Star to lead me outside. She takes me to a lizard that is belly-up, graveyard dead.
There is nothing, and I do mean nothing, quite like having an almost 4 year old around.
