Our Christmas Fairy
On Tuesday, I took Josephine to see the Nutcracker Ballet - or the Coconut Ballet, as she calls it. She loved it. I couldn't believe she sat through the whole thing. Probably helped that I gave a running explanation of the story. Her favorite part: "When the tree get bigger bigger bigger bigger." In her new fairy outfit, she was pretending to be Clara waking up in the middle of the night dancing with her doll. She also created a huge picture of the entire theatre and stage - including the drums in the orchestra pit, the stairs, the hallways, and our seats. Her art recently has begun extremely detailed. Her faces have eyeballs, eyebrows, cheeks. She loves loves loves to draw! And dance.
And then she gets, as she says, "exhausted!"
