Oh So Curious....

As you all know Curious George is a favorite around here.... and several times, over the course of the last year, Rainee has asked me if Curious George was real.... and I'd say... "No, he's just a cartoon".... then she'd say... "But mommy, I believe he IS real".... and that would be the end of our conversation.

Now you can imagine our surprise, while eating ice cream at Universal Studios, when who should pop up.... none other than, you guessed it... Curious George!!! At that moment, Rainee dropped everything and ran over to him... she gave him the biggest hug!!! It was the cutest thing EVER!! Then before she knew it, he was swinging her... back and forth... the delight that came on her face was priceless... I was overjoyed for her... it was just too too cute!!!

After giving him one last hug, we held hands as we walked back to finish our ice cream... then the conversation started... Rainee says to me, with the biggest smile on her face... "Mommy, I told you Curious George was real!".... and my response... "I didn't know, this is.... oh so curious!" Then I received the "I told you so" look from her and a smile.

I think one of the sweetest things is when we are able to see and experience the innocence of a child... it's a beauty to behold. This was one of those times....
