a big claim made in passing

Caroline is in a school play, and the beginning of her number has only blacklight illumination.  I asked her if it was cool to be doing a dance in the dark with only their hands glowing.  She said, "Yes!  It's so cool that it's all dark, though I can still see pretty well on account of my cat vision.  But it's fun!"

you may call her elizabeth

Caroline has been obsessed with a series of biographies from Capstone about real life princesses and queens.  She takes a new one out of the school library each week and reads them day and night.  So I guess I should not have been surprised the other day when she ran into the room, thrust her fist in the air, and yelled, "I may have the body of a weak and feeble woman, but I have the heart and stomach of a KING!"

future career: roadrunner catcher

Caroline is fond of drawing schematics. This one features a balloon from the "My 'op' words" book she made at school.

bring it!

We were having a little pillow fight, and I was trying to go easy on her so she would, in turn, go easy on her little sister. So I thwomped her lightly on the head, and she shouted out, "You call that hitting? Come on!! I have a SKULL!"
