Once Upon A Time... the frequent next line in this conversation:

"Mama, can I tell you about someting?"

"Yeah, babe, what's up?"

"Weeeeellllll....once upon a time..."

She reads numerous books per week, so it's no wonder she is full of imagination!  She told a fabulous tale of an evil octopus and the unicorn, chipmunk, and little girl who saw to the fall of the reign of terror over the "sea.  Except it was a small sea, like a pond.  But a big pond, so really kind of like a lake, you know?"

I'll admit, it had a bit of a dark twist somewhere in the middle that shocked me, but the end was sunshine and flowers.  Just as things should be in the live of a seven year old child. 

Hearing her spin her stories is just one of the many reasons my job is the best.  Hard every day, but rewarding in ways words cannot contain.
