Camille’s dinner party is probably one of the most action packed moments we’ve had on the show thus far. Camille originally wanted to have a full on party but ended up deciding to host an intimate dinner gathering. We knew there would be fireworks when Taylor invited Cole to the dinner and as always were excited to see what mischief PC would cause. I think Camille and the other guests expected PC to have a little fun at their expense and were even kind of looking forward to seeing what he would cook up… and as always… he didn’t disappoint.

What surprised me the most during the dinner party though was Taylor. She stole the show (and PC’s attention) when she announced that she wanted to be an elephant trainer. She said it very matter of fact without a hint of sarcasm, and much like the kids, I had no idea what to make of her proclamation. Well after a bit of introspection, I remembered that at fifteen years of age we should all want to be elephant trainers. The world is still such a magical place where you are only limited by the richness of your imagination. So why not dream to be a philosopher or an animal trainer or a dancer. Why not dream to be all three as Taylor does. The truth is that our most vivid dreams eventually become reality and Taylor dares to dream some of the most vivid dreams of anyone I’ve ever known. This is surely a part of why Sebastian, Cole, and now PC are intrigued by Taylor and why she continues to impress and perplex me even now.
