Grace has a healthy imagination. She has, at one time or another, pretended to be a grandmother, a dog named Sweet Dog (and, since then, Baby), a bride, a lion, a princess, a brand new mother, and Laura Ingalls Wilder at various ages. She also dressed like Cyndi Lauper, but not on purpose. Plus, there were the days of the Wish Piggy, a piggy bank that Grace deposited coins into to get Josiah to turn into a wide variety of creatures. (Each of those links will take you to the corresponding blog post.)
More recently, she has pretended to be an Indian named Indiana (I think it's because it sounded feminine and...um...Indian at the same time) as well as a ninja. This has been going on for at least a year, but has recently been an every day thing again.
When she was dressing herself to go to her best friend's house for her older sister's graduation party and said, "I know exactly what I'll wear," I could hear it in her voice that she was up to something...
|Grace (7) the petite ninja. That's our puppy Bono in the corner behind her--she was trying to blend in with her surroundings.|
I managed to get her changed into something a little less...black, seeing as it's late May. But she still signed the graduation card as "Indiana."
