I recently bought Sammy a few new articles of clothing – really awesome stuff that I got for cheap at the consignment store. A black hoodie with a rhinestone butterfly on it, another with mod purple and blue cats all over it, and one faded old thing which I bought only because it had blue and green hearts on it which reminded me of her eyes (some days blue some days green). She described it all to a stranger today, and was asked which was her favorite. She answered, “the one that matches my eyes.” I find that charming.
Sam’s version of “Call Me Maybe”: “Hey, I just make you. And it’s crazy. So here’s my llama. Call me maybe?” Delivered in a six-year-old voice this is about the cutest thing ever.
I told a great Little Bear story tonight at Sammy’s bedtime. I’m a little sad that I never wrote down my greatest hits. I could have changed the characters around and had my own series of children’s books written by now.
