Once upon a time... a young, idealistic girl aspired to have a profound impact on the world around her. After several years in Chisinau (google that!), she settled down with her beautiful children, profoundly influencing them in more ways than she'd like. (Anyone with parrot-like preschoolers understands that)
She's fallen in love... with a truck. Papa has a big pickup truck, and Bean's favorite thing to do now is sit in the driver's seat and pretend we're going to the grocery store. Of course, then she finds little pieces of change, trinkets, etc., and leans out the window to give them to herself in the mirror... Hours of laughter.
