anything for themselves and
it is tiresome for children
to be always and forever ex-
plaining everything to them.

Hannah, you're a deery lou.

Sarah, I can absolutely see Alex as The Little Prince. He's just needs the coat, the sword, and the boots and he's there.

Kate, thanks for the address. Your special card is on its way. (Everybody check out

Kyrie, when you figure it out, please let me know.

Annie, so glad to tickle your brain.
