Emma's World

I've decided to start a new feature on my blog entitled "Emma's World"! Emma is my 8 year old daughter whose unique personality and perspective on life provides a wealth of amusing anecdotes! Emma has the energy of a humming bird and the attention span of a gnat. She only stops talking when she is asleep or watching television. Her two brothers find this extremely irritating, but I mostly find it amusing. There is never a dull moment with Emma around.

Emma's world is full of fantasy. She believes in unicorns, leprechauns and Santa Clause. In fact, last Christmas she woke up earlier than everyone else so she could turn on the Christmas tree lights. Then when we were all awake and ready to open the presents she exclaimed "Look Dad! Santa Clause turned on the Christmas Tree lights for us!"

Emma also loves to write letters. She will write letters to people occasionally, but mostly her letters are to fictional characters. Most recently she wrote a letter to Pluto. You know, the little planet that was recently scientifically declared no longer a planet. The letter goes like this:

To Pluto (The 10th Planet)

Dear Pluto,

I want to be you're friend. How come you are sad? I love how you look! I live on Earth. If Earth is being mean, ignore him!
