You can learn a lot by watching your children play.
If your lucky, you get a little window into their heart.
Today was one of those days.
My 6 year old has always had a very expressive imagination
with all things pink,
They truly come to life in her mind
and the rest of us get to enjoy the very dramatic dialog.
At some point one of the characters will break forth in song.
Every. single. time.
It's priceless. Please remind me to get some video.
This play is a regular part of everyday life around here.
I don't always have my ears tuned in, but it's there.
Today I cannot resist as
the dramatic scene unfolds.
Apparently these girls have big dreams of being the
next American Barbie Idol.
They have been rehearsing ALL morning.
The friends are dressed in their glamorous runway fashions,
striking out to follow their dreams of making it big under the lights of the stage.
Suddenly the actions stops and I hear words that melt my mommy heart.
please give us a safe trip to Hollywood.
Help us not to be shy...
and to do our best. "
There it is.
A window to her heart.
In Josie's world,
They talk to God.
They seek His help in Hollywood.
And that, my friends, does a mommy's heart a world of good.
