Maddie is a five-year old puppeteer. She has that sweet ability to get her way, and we are just her adoring audience. It can be maddening at times; one minute you’re in charge and the next you’re purchasing a completely necessary educational app or finding yourself getting your nails painted. Lately she has been lamenting the fact that she is an only child. She doesn’t have a little sister or brother to
torture play with and it is the thorn in her side. So she has been on a mission to find a stand in. For a while it has been her life-size Elsa doll. Elsa wears Maddie’s hand me downs, plays all her games, sleeps with her at night, and is a great confidante. She doesn’t tell any of Maddie’s secrets no matter how much I beg. The puppeteer demands confidentiality.

Something tells me her new sister is not going to last very long in the position.
