My daughter Julia came to live with me a year ago for school. It isn't easy for me to raise someone who is practically my 9-year-old clone, but that is exactly what I find I am doing with Julia. Through our judo and soccer practices, reading, writing and arithmetic, Girl Scouts, and Japanese language classes, we occasionally have a conversation that connects us both in a sometimes deep and usually humorous way. Hopefully, you will be as entertained as we are.
Julia has taken an interest in stamp collecting, and Daddy is showing her his stamp collection books…
Julia: Daddy, may I have this book?
Daddy: Well, this one is pretty nice. You’ll get it one day… after I die.
Julia: Oh, man, that means I have to wait like 10 years!
