Writing this down so I don't forget it

On her birthday, Phoebe greeted each of her presents with a long, drawn-out "Ohhhh!" and a two-syllable "Wow!" (Yes, wow can be two syllables, if you're a three-year-old native of North Carolina.) It was all very cute and we laughed. But her best response to a present was a few days later, when a box came from Aunt Aimee. It was a Cabbage Patch doll, in a swimsuit, and Phoebe said "oh!" and "wow!" and then added, breathlessly:

"This is the cutest doll I've ever seen in my whole special life!"

Now that's an expression of gratitude, there.

Tell Phoebe that she is so very welcome (in your best Texan voice, of course!)
