City of Her Own Creation
It's funny to think how much things can change in just half a year or so. In February Mabel was four and in preschool, she let me cut her hair into a sort of short pixie mohawk of my own devising, and she threw lego blocks together at lightening speed to create abstract cityscapes such as this one. Now she is five and in kindergarten, she prefers to keep her hair longer in curly mop cut by a real hair-cutter, and she meticulously follows the directions that come in the lego set to build the thing pictured (she's currently working on the Mos Eisley Cantina from Star Wars). It's surely a cliche of the most worn variety to say "they grow up so fast"--but I've said it before and I'll say it again: It's a cliche because its true.
