What Little Girls Are Really Made Of...

Karenna had a cousin stay over last night.  Both little girls had dinner on the picnic table and then skipped out into the yard to enjoy some peaceful play without being terrorized without their brothers.  (Jude had been picked up for a playdate with another one of their cousins.)

They played in the sandbox, squealed at the ants and spider they found in it, but continued playing anyway.  I sat on the porch and talked to my husband as I watched them play.

After awhile, I noticed the girls where headed my way with old empty bubbles containers, carrying them proudly, as if they made something special out of them.  "Note to self," I thought, "Be very proud and excited about whatever they've made."

The cousin came first, a petite girl with big brown eyes and a tiny little voice.  My own blue-eyed, blonde daughter following, both too adorable for words.

"Nikki," the little voice said, "look what I made.  It has sand and some dirt and grass and rocks and ants and a lid. They'll die now!"

"Yeah!" My own little daughter chimed in with a devilish grin.
