A Dolly for Little Kizombo from Beth's Sister

Content to employ any nearby thing as a toy, this happy toddler spent his days chattering and playing alongside his mother. Maama was busy with the many other women who prepared food for and cleaned up after the seminar participants and helpers.

Usually children sit quietly while their mother works, and look on in preparation for their own responsibilities as they grow, but this child was energetic and chatty. I’ll admit, though, that this isn’t the first time long beautiful eyelashes led me to presume gender incorrectly. Whoops! Still, this Kizombo Sr. namesake was happy to share his meal with his new dolly. Apparently she was spying his food a little too intently so he relented and gave her a taste.

Happy birthday Beth's sister!
