A Star Is Born

Every month Ray's teachers choose a child in their class to highlight. They ask the parents to fill out a form providing little tidbits of information that help everyone get to know the highlighted child better and decorate a bulletin board with pictures of said child. For the month of February, Ray is the lucky one.

We sat down to fill in her information sheet and had an enlightening conversation.

Me (reading the questions on the sheet): What is my favorite color?
Ray: Red. (She's right. MY favorite color is red.)
Me: OK. Let me rephrase that. What is your favorite color?
Ray: Purple.
Me: What do you want to be when you grow up.
Ray: Uhm. Uhm. Uhm. A star.
Me: A star?
Ray: Mhmmm.
Me (writing her answer down): What is your favorite thing to do?
Ray: I like to fly in the sky.
Me: Oh, because you are going to be a star?
Ray: Yeah. I will fly in the sky with the sun and the clouds.
Me (writing that one down as well): What is one surprising thing about you that no one knows?
Ray: I'm bright.

Oh, baby, that you are.
