My four-year-old daughter Carys has already developed a taste for the finer things in life. She’s a girly girl with a capital “G” and has never worn a pair of jeans, ever.
The other night, my oldest daughter said we should all go on a camping vacation to Camp Kanata and go fishing. My son heartily agreed. Carys, on the other hand, said, “Wouldn’t you rather go to Hawaii and see the black sand?” Say what??
And another example…
I’ve finally agreed, after much wearing down, to let the girls get their ears pierced. I was going over it with Carys, making sure she knows what to expect. She kept saying, “I know Mom. I know what’s going to happen. I want to have diamonds on my ears just like you!”
I replied, “I don’t have any diamonds for my ears.” She paused, just for a split second, and said “Do you have pearls?” I said, "Yes, I have pearls."
I don’t think I even knew what diamonds and pearls were at that age!!! Unbelievable!!! She’s going to be so disappointed when I introduce her to Mr. C and Z! (Cubic zirconia, that is)
