The Story-                                                                        
She didn't want to come into the world. She waited. Everyone else said it was time. So after Pitocin and breaking the water, she decided to try. She does everything with purpose and intention. She shot out like a rocket, pink and round. She was so beautiful she looked like a plastic doll. She never cried or fussed much but she was a very loud toddler. She loved the noisy fire truck; she loved banging pots and pans. She loved the rhyming books. She loved her cooking toys; her plastic food, the toaster, the dishes, the refrigerator. Once she played with lipstick on the back of the sofa. She trimmed a chunk of hair on the top of her head. She was brave to ride on a big horse and swim and meet new friends. She is so beautiful and kind; the kind of woman who is a 
good friend.
