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 nine-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.
Twice Is Nice
It's late and Daddy and Julia have returned from judo practice. Julia would like dessert so Daddy gets icicles from the freezer. Julia opens one and it is oddly formed on the stick...
Julia: What happened!?!
Daddy: You left them on the counter and they melted. They froze again like this.
Julia: Wait... that story was real!?!
