The Lion Who Loved Strawberries

The Lion Who Loved Strawberries, a particularly beloved classic Hebrew children's book, inspired Raphaela this morning.

In the middle of a crying jag - which started when she said that she didn't want something, so I didn't give it to her, and then she realized that in saying she didn't want it I took her at her word, and so she didn't get it - she came over to me holding a towel and said, "I am wiping my tears with a towel."

I believe I have a First Class dramatic actress in my daughter.

(For those of you who know the book and the illustrations, it made me smile despite her obvious sorrow.)
