She Will Be King!

Teagan woke halfway through the night & asked me to crawl into bed with her. Then she told me, "I don't have any dreams."

"Would you like some?" I asked, "What would you like to dream about?" I thought of her recent declaration that she'd like to be a zookeeper when she grows up. "Animals?"

"No. I dream of castles."

"Oh. Castles, huh? And are you a princess?"

"I am King," she reports.

"King? OK. Are you a kind king?"

"No."

"You're not? Are you a mean king?"

"Yes."

"Who are you mean to, Tea?"

"To the bad guys."

"Well, OK, that makes sense. You are mean to the bad guys. Are you going to throw them in the dungeon, then?"

"Yes."

Huh. My daughter! Her brother's influence is strong & obvious, no? Let her dream on!
