Isobel has the uncanny ability to locate statues of Buddhas no matter where we go or what we are doing. Most recently she’s been obsessing over the Buddha statues on my patio. She refers to them as “baby” and she loves talking to them and waving at them.
My in laws took us to dinner the other night at a Chinese restaurant a couple towns over, and Isobel zeroed in on a rotund, happy, “laughing” Buddha statue. This one really did resemble a baby and she became quite fond of it. She talked to it, waved at it and blew kisses. I think they are pen pals now.
I happened to have my flip camera with me and I took this video of her and the “baby.” She points out his eyes, nose, mouth, ears, and hair.
