She is better at entertaining herself than anyone I know. The other night, she spent an hour creating a person out of a jump rope, leaves, rocks, and sticks.
On her last night as a four-year-old, I asked her a few questions about herself. She told me her favorite TV show is Max & Ruby. She says her favorite movie is "every Alice in Wonderland we have." Her favorite toy is her swing set, although if you give this child some blocks (Legos!) or a pen and some paper, she will stay busy for hours. She wants a Lalaloopsy doll for her birthday, but she's quite happy with her Littlest Pet Shop and My Little Pony collections. She is very excited for us to (finally!) start reading The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. She means it when she tells you her favorite music is classical, although she is very fond of this song, too. She loves The Snowman, both the book and the short film. She loves Mercer Mayer and Maurice Sendak. She loves Betty Boop and Really Rosie, too.
She is out of school today. I'm taking her to a salon for a haircut. Her Raggedy Ann birthday party will be Sunday. Now that Halloween is over, and the bedroom/playroom makeover job is nearly complete, I can finally concentrate on this party!
Speaking of Halloween, we trick-or-treated at my grandmother's and in my favorite neighborhood in town. It was so much fun! Hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween!
