I very often have conversations with Avery that leave me astounded. That kid is so perceptive and on top of that, she thinks about things. I guess that'd be first part Erin and second part Rich. Not that I don't think, mind you, but, well...
This evening, Avery was practicing her ballet and trying to imitate what Barbie does in "Barbie in the Nutcracker". Avery said to me, "I wish I could do what Barbie does when she sticks her leg straight up behind her and balances. She's amaaaaazing. I wish I could be like her." Horrified, I quickly pointed out that BARBIE IS PRETEND. SOMEONE DREW HER. To that, Avery answered, "Yes, but, they made her too fascinating. People just want to be like her." I just stared at her.
Yes, Avery, they did make her too fascinating. I can't help staring at those long, animated legs and wondering what it would feel like to walk around on a pair of those! God didn't make any of us that way - especially not us, daughter. However, you're incredibly beautiful and were created by the true Mastermind and He finds YOU fascinating!
