Not in Kansas Anymore

One of the very best things about my daughter is her incredible imagination. If you're a regular of chunkyrhino, this is obvious to you by now. But, my dear daughter has stepped up her game and now she's got the boy involved.

They've been staying with my parents the past couple of days, (sweet relief!) and during one of my nightly calls, I was greeted by Menana's howling laughter.

"What's going on?"

"Oh, Amy. This is so funny! All day long, Ry has been telling us that she's Dorothy and Jax is Toto, and I bought this big gypsy puppet, so we've been playing with her a lot. Just now, Ryan walks up to the doll, followed by Jaxson, and introduces herself as Dorothy. She then asks the doll about tornadoes and whether or not there is one nearby. After being "told" that she's safe and doesn't need to woryy, she turns around looks at Jax and says, 'C'mon, Toto' -- and he followed her right along, sguealing and giggling the whole time. Now he's been doing it all night long, and won't answer to his name anymore, only 'Toto'!"

Poor little guy. Never had a chance.

Do you know? We've been planning on doing the whole Wizard of Oz thing for this year's halloween for a while now. I guess he's just giving us his blessing!
