Emma received a calendar this morning so that she can prepare for 2006. As we marked her birthday with a balloon sticker, she started to think about what gifts she might like for her birthday. She told me, "I want a kitty for my birthday. A live one. In a box, so I can pet it. And I'll call her TV Kitty. That's what I want. Can you get me that?"
Since Bumper is still around, and by the looks of it not going anywhere, I don't think Emma's dream of her own kitty will become a reality anytime soon. But a girl can dream.
