Laurel: Momma, I want a goat.
Me: We don’t have room for a goat.
Laurel: No, Momma, a brown goat.

Laurel’s story of Cinderbeauty:
Once there was a girl with chores. She had mousey friends and birdie friends. She liked to sing. There was a mean cat, and mean big girls. That nice lady came and made her a princess, and she danced with a boy. Then there was a spinning wheel and she fell asleep. The boy fought a dragon, and found Cinerwella’s shoe. Then they kissed and the mousies were happy.
