The purpose of this blog is to be an outlet for sharing the things I make and bake. This entry is off topic from that but I thought still worth sharing. And if you wanted to tie it back to craftiness, I did make the girl. *wink*
One of my favorite local thrift stores has everything half price each Monday. This past Monday my 5yo daughter looked through all the Barbie dolls to see if there was one worth buying for 50¢. Among all the similar shaped blonde dolls, my girl found a doll she liked. A beautiful ballerina doll. She was very excited. That evening before bed she asked me to help her name her new doll. I tossed out a few names: Brittany, April, Joy, Tiana...
"Stop. Mom, why did you say Tiana?"
"Because you like the Princess and the Frog movie and that's the princess's name."
"I know why you said Tiana! Because this doll wears BLUE and Tiana likes blue and wears BLUE! I like blue too!"

My daughter likes to tell people she's five now but knows things her mom doesn't. She likes to tell strangers that kids can teach adults things too. It's truer than she can comprehend. Children can teach us so much but we also must be so diligent to make sure we teach them the right things too.
