Motivational things we don't say

Perhaps it won't surprise you to hear that Lilly has developed a bit of a dramatic streak recently.

Remember a while back when she stood at the end of the driveway, waiting for her dreams to come true?

Yesterday she woke me up by telling me that she was listening to her heart, and her heart wanted to watch TV.

In the afternoon, Owen was playing with a toy he wouldn't share with her, and she said, "Owen!  You're breaking my heart!"

After dinner, her heart told her she really wanted to wear a dress instead of pants.

And then, when it was bed time, she said she was going to follow her heart downstairs for a snack.

The thing that's a little weird for me though, is that we don't say things like, "Follow your heart, Lilly."

What is HAPPENING at that school?
