If you could change anything...

...what would it be?

This is a question I just posed to Finny. She woke up, disturbed by the handfuls of gravel that are rattling around her lungs every time she shifts. Poor thing. She was feeling sad, so to distract her, I asked her what she would change about our family if she had the power to alter anything (a ridiculous and dangerous question, I know. I was sort of scrambling and that just came out. I was intrigued to hear what she would come up with, but also a little scared at the same time). So, what does an almost four year old want to change? More candy at every meal? Dresses every day? Nope. Here you go...if Finny were queen for a day:

We would have different coloured plates and bowls because the ones we have are boring to look at.

She and Molly would get a full outfit each, knitted by me. Everything should be knit: skirt, tights, shirt, purses, underwear and shoes.

Right. I'll get right on those.

I can still hear her hacking away upstairs. Her immune system may be down but the little brain is working overtime.

Here is a great picture of Lukey from last weekend at my friend's Sam's delicious cabin on Keats Island.

I shudder at the thought of wearing knit undies...

My favorite outfit when I was 5 was a pink knit skirt, sweater and leg warmer set my aunt knit so I have to say I totally get it!
