Babysitter

For a large part of the holidays, I have been experiencing life from the perspective of a three-year-old girl whose language I can barely speak. It is refreshing to break free from a hectic and pragmatic lifestyle and spend hours contemplating the relationship between two stuffed toys (more often than not, this is a curious love-hate relationship).
Having no children of my own but lots of experience with othersí, Iím somewhat adept at following her erratic ramblings, and refrain from trying to hold her attention. The real wonder, however, is in seeing the learning experience slowly, slowly taking a hold.
