The Ladybug, Butterfly, and I were in my office this morning, working on various art projects. The Ladybug was more jittery that usual, owing to the fact that she had a special President’s Day play-date with some of her school friends scheduled for later in the morning, and she had been waiting for it for two whole weeks.
“Oooo, I’m just so excited,” she said. “I can’t wait for the party to start!”
Worried that she might be over-estimating the actual event, I reminded her “It’s not a party. It just a play-date get-together.”
Without looking up from her work, the Butterfly added a single additional comment, to which the Ladybug and I responded with several minutes of sputtering laughter. Her reply:
“Candace party! Candace party!”
