Princess A

Last year we were in Colorado for a family reunion. We stayed in a lovely mansion of a cabin with an amazing view of the mountains. Quite a delightful retreat.

My granddaughter A. (who was two) had found her way into the upstairs game room where the boys were all bunking. When the kids went in to play games, they found her there, getting into my son's bag of candy. She gave them one of those looks a cockroach gives you when it sees that big boot descending.

She whispered with an elfish grin, "Shut the door."

I think that given the body of her previous sayings and actions, A. will be cracking the String Theory by the time she's sixteen.
