Fostering curiosity in kids (and their parents) since 2011

In which The Four-Year-Old discovers the pure unadulterated joy that is…

The boots, temporarily at rest after weeks of near constant jumping.

… a new-to-you pair of white leather cowboy boots.

The Four-Year-Old, jumping up and down in the vintage store during the test run before purchase: “These boots have got some hop in them.”

Hopping over to a mirror, and pausing (briefly) to admire her reflection, The Four-Year-Old again: “Maybe I could go herding a cow in them. Or a bull.”

Turning to me, with great excitement, The Four-Year-Old: “Mommyo! Maybe I could even get a job in Texas!”

      Thank you for your interest, Betty Sue Eleanor Jehosaphat, ma’am. I will certainly pass along your inquiry to The Four-Year-Old once she completes her latest interplanetary mission. I believe she is still counting the rings of Kitty Saturn.
