Feliz Cumpleanos de Maya

Last week Dora the Explorer arrived in our mailbox, inviting Maya to a birthday fiesta for her amiga on Sabado. Maya thought it was MUY bien. The birthday chica's madre and padre said no presents, por favor, and asked if each child could instead bring a can of comida for the food bank. "Fantastico! No problemo," I said. "HEY!" Maya said. Problemo! She'd been waiting a long time for an amiga party and was not very feliz about bringing pureed pumpkin. We talked mucho and eventually she saw the luz.


"It's O.K.," she sighed, looking at the can. "It comes with whipped cream."

Mmmm, Muy delicioso!

Eileen said...

I never mock anyone. I might mock a turleneck, maybe a trial. But mock one of my precious 22 followers? NEVER.
