The other day, I was in my bathroom getting ready - ever notice how a lot of my stories start out that way? You'd think I spend all my time in there...but it reality, those little monkeys follow me everywhere...I never get a moment's peace! - Anyway...Kendall walks in and tells me she needs to tell me something REALLY important. Of course, I can't wait to hear what it is! But then I have to smile when she tells me, because...well, it's"Kendall". Witness:

"Mama, I need to tell you something REALLY important!"

"OK, shoot."

"I was thinking and guess what? I'm going to be a superhero! My name is NatureGirl 'cause I protect nature and Scout is going to be my trusty sidekick! His name is WonderDog and his super power is that his bark is so loud it can be heard around the world so he can warn the entire earth of imminent danger!!!"

"Like what? Maybe a huge asteroid coming straight at the earth? A flood? An earthquake? What will he warn everyone of?"

She scrunches up her nose at me, and replies "MAMA! Nothing silly like that! I'm talkin' more like a giant grasshopper invasion! Remember??? I'm NATURE Girl!!!
