Tending to her hair before bed to make sure it stays healthy
Her – “Daddy, are we done yet?”
Me – “No.”
Her – “But I counted to one hundred.”
I chuckled hearing that she had been doing that silently
Me – “Just count twenty more.”
The old “count twenty more” technique. How many times I’ve used that with her to help us get through situations.
Her – “But that’s a long time.”
Me – “No, it isn’t.”
Her – “To a child it is.”
Comments like that where a child reminds an adult about a child’s world always catch me off guard. But I continued on until it was done.
