Alex is usually my down to earth kid. While Beau is dreaming of magical places and imaginary friends, Alex dreams of playing in the real world.
But occasionally the magic of being young captures even her...
"Mom watch me I'm riding on a pony"
"Yeah?! What's your pony's name?"
"He's name is rascal and he's really a unicorn. He takes me flying. Watch!"
Watching the quiet joy on her face while she played with Rascal for the next 20 minutes will be ingrained in my brain for years.
That kid just makes me smile.
