Roo stayed with Grandma while I made a grocery run today and when I got back, she was totally inconsolable. Turns out she and her five year old cousin asked what the newspaper story about the cute little blonde girl was and my mom actually told them. Now, ordinarily, when Roo asks about something I will tell her in as much detail as I can. But my aunt and I were a bit aghast at my mother's honesty in this situation– she told them all about how four year old Madeleine McCann was abducted from a hotel room while she slept and her parents were out having dinner. Roo was sobbing, telling me about the little girl and the hotel and the bad guy stole her and now she's kidnapped... my imaginative three year old now knows what kidnapping is. Thanks, mom.
