Did I ever tell you about Pandora? She was really bright for a hamster, although she never did learn to flush.
My daughter Bea also showed intellectual promise very early on.
We read to her.
We played dress up.
Lots of dress up.
Dress up in ones and twos and threes…
Oh, yes, and dress up en masse!
Did I mention dress up?
We told lots and lots of stories from near and far, and soon she was telling stories too.
We saw something of the world, near…
She explored the things she loved, like history (and dress up)….
More history (and more dress up!)
Cooking (and dress up)…
Storytelling ( and dress up)…
…and more writing.
If Bea is bright, it’s because she shines from within, with the spark of curiosity, a love of make-believe, and a passion for learning.
Oh, yeah, and for dress up!
