This little girl wears two braids in her hair almost every day. She has to be like Laura. We are reading Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder and Bea loves it! She wants me to read it to her as soon as she wakes up in the morning, but mostly it is for bedtime/naptime after Amby is down.

Those books are so sweet and I think it is really good for Bea to start to realize that I'm not just making this stuff up: My standards for Bea's behavior are very similar to Ma's standards for Laura and Mary. Little girls must not be selfish, they must obey, do their chores and sometimes they must even be quiet.

I think Bea's favorite part so far was when Ma slapped a bear because she thought it was Sukey, their cow. That was really scary! But they were ok because Laura obeyed right away without asking questions. :)


  1. Awe. I can't wait until Juniper is old enough to understand books, more than just that they taste good.
