My granddaughter creates her own diversions while her brother gallops about the soccer field. While his eye is on the ball, she is picking clover. While he is lining up to kick, she is lining up her toys. While he is listening, intent upon his coaches words, she is listening, intent upon a story book.
This week's most valuable player was a Little Golden Book, Kitty Gets a New Doll.
"I wish I had a kitty rag doll," my little granddaughter murmured wistfully.
I was suddenly seized with the same wistful wish on her behalf.
Surely she should not be disappointed.
