Yesterday Sophie and I had several hours alone.
I took full advantage of the ease of just having one child with me...and ran quite a few errands.
Sophie was cheerful and helpful where ever we went.
She was absolutely delightful to share the day with---
even when demanding--- "Mommy, carry me!"
As we were driving in the car to pick up her sisters I said,
"Sophie, you are so fun to be with and always so cheerful. I love you."
She replied, "My daddy learned me that."
To clarify I asked, "Did daddy teach you that?"
"Yes, daddy teached me that." she said very matter-of-factly.
Yes he did. Yes he did.
