happiness and the six year old
on sunday i served my family spaghetti and meatballs for dinner. our daughter, while settling herself in at the table, saw her plate and said "i just love this family. this is the best dinner ever!"

(if only every meal i served was met with such enthusiasm.)

last night, there was more happiness:

"i have homework tonight, mom," said sophie.

"ok, what's your assignment?"

"reading. a 'd' level book!"

"that's great! get the book out of your bag and we'll start."

after she read the 'd' level and a 'c' level book, she asked "want me to read '
fat cat' to you?"

"sure!"

after she read 'fat cat' she asked "want me to read '
five little ducks' to you?"

"yes!"

after she read 'five little ducks' i said "sophie, you read four books to me all by yourself! i'm so proud of you!"

she replied "this is the best night of my life!"


may it always be that easy...
