Dispatches From Toddlerhood

Today's post comes to you in the words of Ayla. She had a dream. She drew the picture. And then she said:

"It licked me, and it was big, but it had no eyes, and it was very big and it was on my bed and it licked me and it's tongue was soft. It had one eye and no arms. Then I closed my eyes and it was coming straight at me! And i was scared."
