What's in a Name?
What happens when you leave a 5 year old little girl alone in her room with some construction paper and a pair of scissors? At our house, the answer is, she surprises you. I thought she might make several different things, but her last name wasn't one of them. She was so excited! She came out of her room quietly and said, "Mommy, come see what I did!" I was thinking the worst. Had she cut all the paper into teeny tiny slivers I would be finding for the next week all over her room? What a relief to find that she'd made her last name, mostly from scraps. And to top it off she'd neatly gathered all the left over pieces into a pile on top of her Dora table. Yea, Danya!
