Good at castles
When she came back, there were blue curtains. Is there anything behind the ballerina? we asked. Maybe a garden, or a ballroom, or a castle?
A castle, she said, as she headed off. I'm good at castles.
I love that at seven, this is one of the things you can be confident about.
As you can see, the ballerina (purple) got a castle (also purple). (Doesn't purple just work? It's so multipurpose).
And then she gave it to me. It's on the kitchen dresser, adding its own individual, purple, good-castle style. Great present. It's been signed, now too, with her name and age, because these things are worth both keeping and remembering.
