We are reading our nightly bedtime stories. This particular book we are reading has Dora examining different occupations she could have when she grows up. After reading about archaeologists, astronauts, Animal Rescuers and crack dealers we get to the page where Dora could be a cowgirl. The illustration shows a small pen with a horse, a cow, Dora, Boots, Benny the Bull and lots of cowgirl stuff.
None of the other stuff matters, however, as Swee’Pea becomes fixated with the horse. She loves the horse. She lets it be known that whatever she does, it has to involve the horse.
“So, Swee’Pea, do you want to be a cowgirl?” I ask.
“No.” Swee’Pea replies, shaking her head emphatically.
“I want to be a horse girl.”
