I have taught Olivia well. I overheard her playing in her room with the sitter. She was packing for a trip.
"What shall we pack for you?" he asked.
She pulled out her fabulous, special princess high heels that her godmother Joann gave to her. She dug around the room for her "treasure box," a little makeup kit that Joann also gave her.
"Anything else?" he asked.
"Extra panty and extra shorts. Maybe an extra t-shirt," and then she got some out of her closet and stuffed that in her backpack.
I laughed. What three year old thinks about such practical matters? That's when I knew Olivia will be just fine in this life.
