A couple days later I found The Diary. Curiousity was killing me. I knew that it was her diary and that I shouldn't look at it. By their nature diaries are for the owner's use only. But then I figured she's only 5-years-old, what could be so secret in there. So I took a peek...
Here's The Diary...Let Your Thoughts Dance (like how it has little keys, incase her 3-year-old brother tries to steal it and read it).
Page 2: "God"...I guess if you're going to write a word in your diary that's a pretty good one to pick. She's got her priorities straight. Or maybe she was starting a prayer "God, please don't let my mommy read my diary."
Pages 3 & 4: Princess stickers. Can't forget that our life revolves around princesses and we're waiting for the day that we will become one--today it looks like the preferred princesses were Snow White and Belle.
Page 5 & 6: Not real sure what's going on here, lots of writing and maybe working on changing our name from "Katie" to "Kate". There's a drawing of two girls (I'm assuming princesses), one looks happy, one looks sad. Then we've got some beautiful flowers and butterflies.
Page 7: American flag. Be proud to be an American, people!
Page 8: This is some type of weird cat gerbil dog chipmunk monkey thing. I don't know what it is, but it's kind of freaking me out--especially that one big black eyeball.
So, after careful reading this is what I've come up with for Katie's first diary entry:
"Dear Diary--My name is Katie and as you can see from my picture, I love to wear pink. But I don't really have red hair. I've prayed to God to make me a princess one day--either Snow White or Belle. Diary, do you think I should start calling myself 'Kate' now? I really want to live in a land of butterflies and flowers, but even as a princess I will remain loyal to my country, America. Unless it is taken over by cat-gerbils with mutated eyeballs. Oh, and mommy, I know you're reading this. Good night, Diary."
