Megan and Maya were balancing heavy books on their heads as they paraded around the family room in their princess dresses. Their mother told me that each had gotten some money for Christmas. They studied online catalogues and finally found these dresses that fit their budgets. So they decided to buy them. Now they like to practice Princess skills --- like walking with perfect posture and having tea parties using their best manners.
A different day they spent drawing, coloring and designing paper dolls. Megan told me that she really loved the book I sent them for Christmas about when I was young and loved to play with paper dolls. "We're making costumes, and sportswear and glamorous evening dresses --- just like in your book, Grandma!"
She knew just what to say to melt her Grandma's heart.
"We just aren't having a drawing contest!" added Maya.
Good girls! They understood the message of the story! (I love these girls!)
