The other day, Charlotte brought me this doll (Sleeping Beauty, for you non-princess folks out there) and was telling me all about her:

"See her?"
"Yes, I do."
"She got her pink dress on. And she got her crowns on (quoting directly, here..random things are plural)."  And her snails!"
"Her snails?"
"Yes, her snails." (showing me the back of the doll)

Isn't that funny? She calls all curlicues "snails" ever since she learned about snails in one of her books.

Charlotte brought me this um, strainer? I don't even know what it just sits in our lazy susan cabinet...this was our conversation:

Charlotte: "See dis?"
Me: "Yes"
Charlotte: "It's a lady bug."
Me: "Oh, neat!"
Charlotte: "She is nice."
Me: (smiling)
Charlotte: "She's a nice girl!"

I guess with the holes, it does look a bit like the back of a big silver lady bug. Good eye, girl!
