Sometimes it is hard for Sylvia when Ben goes off to preschool. She waves him off each day, and has this kind of desperate, morose look in her eyes. It is easy to see that she is worried that she won't be able to fill the time until her brother comes home. Today was one such day, so I asked her if there was anywhere special she'd like to go. And of course, she asked to go to the dollar store! We picked up a little art set for her to work on while Ben is away. This girl loves to paint, draw, color-basically anything artistic. She is so much fun!
