i think that she probably looks a little like the wild scary beast in the book 'where the wild things are'. i'm not sure though. the scary little wild animal comes out at the most inappropriate times....in the middle of walmart,, at the zoo, at the park, at zupas at lunchtime, anywhere really...she's not picky about where she freaks out. it's not so bad when dave is there to help, unfortunately he's not there most of the time when it happens. my sister, ginny, is also very good at helping maya through these fits of craziness. she can calm her down. today the scary little wild animal came out at the park, and wouldn't go away! she was there while we drove to 'harts' so that i could get the magic potion that helps me deal with the wildness. she was there the whole time we drove home, there was kicking and screaming and gnashing of teeth. there may have even been some hitting and pulling hair on herself. i try really hard while i'm driving to just pretend it isn't going on. sometimes i am good at that and sometimes i'm not. we came home and the little wild animal went to her cave and had a nice little nap. while she was napping i decided the best way to remember why i love the little girl was to do something nice for her. isn't that supposed to work? i think it did. when she woke up my maya girl was back...whew! i made her this little dance bag and the whole time i thought of all the good things about maya. there are so many after all.

how to explain miss maya....hmmm. my maya is the sweetest little girl you could ever know. she is chock full of love, kisses and hugs and constantly saying the sweetest things to me. she can share and take care of other kids, especially her little sister. then there is the other maya. she comes out when things aren't going her way. example: she wants to stay at the park, she wants a lunchable at walmart, she doesn't want to go to bed, peyton has something that she doesn't want her to have...you get the picture. then this scary little wild animal comes out.
