This article presents the author's views about her child's activities whose name is Meg, 5 year old. She just boarded the bus to kindergarten. Luckily, a zookeeper simply wears khakis. Yesterday she was dressed as Anne of Green Gables, complete with braids in her hair, a straw hat, and a calico dress. The previous morning she'd wanted her hair in a ponytail, along with a white blouse, black vest, and pants she could untuck from her knee socks when ready to step out of that day's character, a colonial boy.
