Hattie, the Story-teller

Hattie loves when I tell her stories. Sometimes I tell her traditional ones, and other times, I just make up silly ones, usually about her or me. Today I asked her to tell me a story. This is what she told me:

Once upon a time there was a Hattie named little girl and princess, and she got in trouble and got in time-out. The End.

Yep, that pretty much sums up what consumes our days here:
princesses, getting in trouble, and time-out

And, as a side note, the former reading teacher in me is so proud of my baby for having an introduction, problem, and conclusion in her story. She even has character development. Now we just have to work on plot and detail a little more......:)

That's exactly what I was thinking! She's got the basics of storytelling down. Of course we'd see that. 'Cause, you know, former and teacher don't go together. Our venue may change, but we're always teachers!

Cute story :) I meant to tell you last night that you look really great! I never would have guessed you gave birth 2 months ago! Anyway, hope Mary Ellen's check-up goes well and that your day is semi-poop-free!

Wisdom From the Pope

“The inalienable dignity of every human being and the rights which flow from that dignity - in the first place the right to life and the defense of life - are at the heart of the church's message." Pope John Paul ended his address, saying: "In spite of divisions among Christians, 'all those justified by faith through baptism are incorporated into Christ...brothers and sisters in the Lord.'"
