|Goosey meeting Dorothy, cause, well, I didn't take a photo with Dora.|
After prying her off Ms Explorer's leg, Goose asked: "Why didn't Dora say anything?"
Skip explained to her that Dora was a bit shy, what with all the people wanting to take her photo and cuddle her. This was a perfectly valid explanation for Goosey and since we arrived home she's been telling anyone who will listen about Dora's shyness.
This morning, we had to make a trip to our local shopping centre and the kids were thrilled to see that Santa had arrived. Waving their little arms in glee, Santa ushered them over before I could usher them into Target (he was lacking in willing knee sitters, it appeared). After a few minutes of chatting, they returned with their hands filled with pencils and colouring books.
I asked what Santa was like. Goosey was delighted to reveal: "Santa's not shy, Mama. He spoke to me. It's really good, he's not shy at all. I'm so happy." I think that's something she has in common with St Nick.
