I know this kid. She and I spend large chunks of time together. We do fun things.
We read. Always lots of reading. I like reading. So does she.
She’s got lots of fun toys. Like a homemade flashlight. And a set of little people. A great big giraffe, blocks, sidewalk chalk… all the good stuff.
After we read, I usually want to do her hair. She’ll sternly suggest another story.
“Kay-inn, you need to read five more pages before we do my pony hair”.
One of the things I love about Gladi is she lets me put as many of these barrettes in her hair as I want. And I had these as a kid…bow ties and butterflies.
Two stories, twenty minutes, and half a tear later…mission accomplished.
Quizzical, inquiring, pensive… she wanted to know why I wasn’t wearing dangly earrings here. She’s amazing.
Stay tuned for more adventures in Gladi-land.
