Heidi Francesca is pretty pleased with herself.
She is only a little dot, not much more than a toddler
but if she stands up really straight and holds her head high
she figures she looks old enough to go to school.
Not yet my little one,
you have a few more years at home,
being someone's best friend,
learning how to tie your shoes laces
and braid your hair.
Sometimes little ones are in such a rush to grow up and sometimes we try to hurry them on.
Sometimes it's best to just sit quietly for a while and dream some dreams and think up some wild imaginings and go into the garden and pick some flowers to make a fairy crown or get a blanket and throw it over some chairs and make a cosy hide away where you and your dollies can play and maybe a few pixies and elves will join you too.
Sometimes it's a good idea to sit quietly for a while and forget about rushing on to the next thing.
