Tonight, Audrey was sitting on the toilet taking care of business while I sat beside her and told her a story. This is yet another demand of my high-maintenance child. She likes to hear stories rather than perusing a magazine like the rest of the general populace. After I had told three lengthy stories, Audrey was finally finished.
She jumped off the toilet and leaned over the bowl to inspect her handiwork. She exclaimed “Mommy, it looks like a tyrannosaurus!” The scenario reminded me a little of laying in a field on a warm spring day and looking for pictures in the clouds. You might not see a tyrannosaurus initially but once your companion points it out, you can no longer see the cloud any other way. I hope that Audrey is always able to see things that others cannot, especially when the circumstances are crappy.
