If you show your daughter you like Alice in Wonderland, she might grow up thinking it's fun to read fairy tales.
If she thinks it's fun to read fairy tales she might develop an active imagination.
If she develops an active imagination she might love going to Disneyland with you.
If she loves going to Disneyland with you she might meet Alice in Wonderland.
If she meets Alice in Wonderland, she might realize that Alice can live and breathe outside of her story.
If she realizes that Alice can live and breathe outside of her story, she might start to think up new stories about Alice.
If she starts to think up new stories about Alice, she might write them down.
And if her nickname happens to be Drama Girl, she might write those stories down in the form of a play, which becomes the school play, which she gets to direct.
And then you get to show your daughter all over again how much you like Alice in Wonderland.
I am so excited about this. Drama Girl and a friend have written a play called "Wonderland." I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but everyone who has read it is absolutely crazy about it. Her brother and sister even auditioned and got parts because they were so excited about the script.
So this spring is all about Alice, in addition to all the excitement about college admissions. I can't think of a more wonderful way to end her high school days.
