How to Tie

If you are five, you are big enough to play with Grandma’s old dollhouse.

Excepting the doors are tied closed with a shoestring, and you don’t get to open the doors till you know how to tie them closed again.

That’s how mean an aunt I am.

We worked on it a long time this morning, but now she can tie!

I am proud of her, because learning to tie is really hard work.

I dot think I could tie till I was six or seven at least. She thinks it is pretty cool that she beat me, that she can already tie at five.

Excepting she doesn’t much enjoy it yet, as mostly it is just access to the dollhouse.

Playing with a dollhouse is way more fun than practicing how to tie.

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
