From Ginny Andelin Leavitt
Last week I was at a large family party. Many dressed up including four year-old Christine who wore a yellow, flowing princess gown. Her mother had combed her blond hair into a pretty bun and let her put on lipstick and some fancy jewelry. Shy four year-old Luke tried to be near his girl cousin all night. He maneuvered in the crowd close to her and stared at her but failed to get her attention and to play with her. As the party ended, Luke asked his mother if he could play with Christine after they got home. She told him it was too late but that he could see her in the morning. He then wailed, “But she won’t look like that in the morning!” This came as a shock to me since I thought Luke’s only love were tractors, trucks, and backhoes.
