When she wakes up in the morning Mabel spends about two minutes yawning and rubbing her eyes. After that, she sparkles wide awake. Tuesday morning I took this one, quick, sparkling picture at breakfast with Mabel in her Yeti Rescue Club pajama top. I meant to ask Mabel whether the yetis on the shirt are the ones who do the rescuing or the ones who get rescued – but forgot to ask. My granddaughter, in her eagerness for all of life, kept me too busy answering questions of her own (and reading books and fixing breakfast and washing hands and brushing teeth and choosing school clothes for the promise of a hot spring day in San Francisco).
