Dramatic elements

Only one of my children, technically, is a tween, but there is no shortage of drama where eight-year-old Frances is concerned, either.

Interestingly, her drama involves language with which, if someone else had spoken or if she had been reading, she would have had great difficulty. But it’s her figurative language, and that makes all the difference. 

The other day, on the way home, Frances, deadpan, announced:

I want to go home so badly that I would jump into a pirate ship and fight off twenty pirates just to get there.

Fortunately, I only expected her to jump into a bus, but it is good to know that she would have been prepared in either case… ūüôā
