Kids these days

My daughter is a story-teller.  I would pay cash money for an ounce of preschooler imagination; there’s really nothing like it.

While driving in the car today to get ice-cream, my precocious 4-year-old gave me this little spiel:

D: “Mommy, did you know I have two favorite towers?”

Me: “Yessss! Are we starting Tolkien early??”

D: “The Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Eiffel Tower.”

Me: “Oh. Ok, still pretty cool you know those landmarks.”

D: “Yep. Now, can you be quiet? I’ve got to make a phone call.  Sacagawea is in trouble and she needs my help.”

She proceeds to “dial” on a large cowrie shell she found in the car.

D: “Hello?  Sacagawea?  Calm down.”

I’m so in love.
