Yesterday Eden handed me her new Hello Kitty notebook and pen and began to dictate a letter.
You’re so sweet. I know you tickle me a lot so sweet. Baby Jesus was born in da stable.”
And then she dashed away.
Later she again thrust the notebook and pen at me.
“Dear Cousins and Friends:
I wish you could be nice and love and not googly monsters and I love you very much and I want you to have a nice vacation. That smelling yummy thing in the microwave is food. Lots of cousins of mine have to be on my birthday.”
As I was scribbling this second missive I wondered why she thought I was her personal Girl Friday. And then I remembered that I have been recording her wit and wisdom since she could string two words together. If I had someone following me around with a notebook I would put her to work too.
