Learning People Are Different

I am pretty comfortable going to different countries.

I have been to China and Mexico and to a bunch of different states. I know they are not countries. But the people are different.

I want to travel to a new world.

I want to go under the sea. I want to be a mermaid.

Ariel is my favorite princess. She is a lot of people’s favorite princess.

Ariel is beautiful. And she can go back and forth between 2 worlds! Not states. Not countries. But worlds!

I want to do that, too.

I want to be a mermaid sometimes.

Daddy and Mommy took me to the beach. And it was wonderful. Scary. But incredible.

I think if I knew how to swim I wouldn’t be afraid.

Dreams Start at the Beginning

So, my sweet mommy signed me up to take swimming lessons. And she drives me there and watches to make sure that when the teacher tells me to go under he remembers to tell me to come back up, too! He he he.

Swimming is going to be fun. And when I get really good at it. I am going diving, too.

And when I am really good at that, I am going to grow a tail, but just for a while, and explore under the sea.

Have you ever wanted to be a mermaid?
