Of course, my shadow was helping me along nicely with my own vase when I asked her if she might like to have a vase of her very own, to place next to her bed and make her room lovely. She said no and I was floored. "This is not my Corynn" I thought.
Then she said...
"I would like a vase. But I want to put it in Papa's room to surprise him."
"Papa's room" is the garage, where it sits this very moment awaiting his return from work.
My, she is sweet!
