Not really about dandelions - I just like them. This blog is mostly about my daughter, but more generally, a way to keep family and friends up to date on my life. Visitors are welcome too.

alienation makes for a bad day
The other day E heard the word "alienated" on the radio news and asked what it meant. Of course it piqued her interest, having to do with aliens. I said, "It means being left out."
Soon she said, "Mommy? Not this day, but another day..., I felt alienated. I was playing with Everett and he was picking someone to be his dog, and I was wearing my white dress with the buttons on it and he said the person he picked was wearing a SHIRT, and that was Niyah! And then he picked Abby to be his wife!"
ribs do kind of look like gills
On Sunday E and I went to the neighborhood park, and we ran a lot, played tag. E ran so hard she had to stop: she put her hand on her ribs and said she had a pain in her gills.
I said, "That's actually called a 'stitch'," and I told her to rest for a bit and it would go away. Every time after that when she was running and had to stop, she would grab her side and yell, out of breath but apparently quite happy, "My ditch! My ditch!"
