"Here, just reach out your golden septor when you want someone to come." Jane grabs an old pink hanger out of Jack's hands, and points it at Lulie, "See, like this. You can come now Lulie." Lucy grins and barrels up onto the hearth, a pile of royal pillows and blankies.

"I wanna be Queen Esther," Jack says.

"You can't."

"I wanna be Esther!"

After a spell of yelling and haranguing on the pink hanger Jane settles the matter, "You can't. It's like how I can have babies and you can't."

"Because she's a girl and you're a boy," I call from the kitchen.

Jane raises her eyebrows, "It's like that. It doesn't really make sense."

"Oh, ok." Jack plays Mordecai.

I suppose it doesn't hurt to learn early on that some things just don't make sense! That girl is such a hoot!

"'s like that..." Today I'll look with purpose, for the "it's like that" moments in which all my wanting it to go my way doesn't work; And though it may not make much sense, it's like that. What a beautiful lesson (I'm still learning...)!
