Kid Poetry

Sometimes, my daughter uses words in ways that strike me as pure poetic genius.  My all-time favorite was when my husband flattered her with a compliment and she blushed and giggled and said, "Daddy, you tickle my dreams." 

The other day, she turned a rather prosaic statement into poetry with a simple one-word substitution.  She noticed that the baby had cut a tooth and announced that his tooth had "bloomed."
