    Debbie, I agree with Cyndi - I could see this illustrated in watercolour. So perfect for a children's book! I just love the last summary couplet!

    Hey, Sis, did love this so... and I can so easiy see this illustrated. When I close my eyes I see it as watercolour and ink. Life has gone totally off the deep end this week. Hubby is working at his casual job from 6:30 am til 8:30 pm (sometimes 9!) I am getting 40 mins (time to shower and do a few dishes, make his lunch and do a quick tidy. Next week? More of the same... and yet I can already miss her (next year kindergarten) I am CRACKERS! Maybe moms have the stages? LOL. Love ya xox

    That came across wrong. Hubby is working an additional 3 hours so leaves at 11 am instead of 2 pm... Both he and I are "fashed" now there's a word!
