Tortuga Template 3: Kellie Mize
Shabby Princess Wonderful Kit


My little Jake Man is a virtual quote machine. The things he says just floors me. How does he maneuver idioms into conversations that are usually only used by adults? On this particular occasion, we were getting his hair cut. He had insisted on bringing a treasured Lego car that “my daddy builted for me” to show Miss Tina. Walking into the hair salon, he paused for a second and said to me with such conviction:
“Mom, this is like a dream come true.”


Of course, I couldn’t suppress my laughter. You wouldn’t have either had you been there - trust me. And I couldn’t help but smile as he proudly showed it to everyone in the salon, demonstrating the doors and trunk: the car his daddy had “builded”.
