I bought Jessica a new toy for the long drive to NC. It was a little portable Bratz (yes, I buy my daughter Bratz stuff; I'm okay with it) dollhouse. I knew she would love it. And she was really excited when I gave it to her on the morning of the second day of the trip.

"I love it, Mommy! I'm going to play with it for 28 days!"

Five minutes later she was begging me to play with the new toy I had bought for her brother.

Apparently time doesn't pass in the same way it used to.

You'd think....

You'd think a professional photographer could take a picture in focus. Apparently this is what passes for artsy in Wondertime:

Jessica the Destructor

The playmobil castle I got for the kids for Christmas is currently in several large pieces. I'm not sure what happened. I wasn't witness to the carnage. I just asked Jessica if she wanted me to put it back together.

"No, thanks," she said. "I like it destroyed. Every time you try to fix it, I'll destroy it."

That's incentive.
