Mademoiselle Butterfly

Yesterday was the Christmas party for kids at John's office. First, Maylin enjoyed the talents of the balloon man and a magician. Then she got to shake Santa's hand, and even managed to pat him on the back when he turned around. She was anxious to get her present (all employees' children get this wonderful benefit -- parents choose from a catalog) -- a little produce stand, complete with plastic fruits and veggies, a basket, and a shopping cart. But maybe she was most excited about getting her face painted at the end by a wonderful artist. Maylin waited so quietly in line after three other children, and then sat beautifully still for the face painter. I was stunned by Maylin's serene beauty.
