This morning my little daughter Melody, four years old, was writing in her composition notebook where she likes to practice her letters and the names of everyone in our family. With excitement in her eyes, she turned to me and exclaimed, "Look Mom, I wrote dad"!"
I smiled when I saw the page. "That's great, honey, but you wrote your d's backwards! It says bab, not dad!"
With perfect aplomb, she replied, "That's OK! I'll just call him bab then!"
Now isn't that like human nature to redefine rather than redo?
Here's Melody and her bab. How do you like her sense of style? She dressed herself for church, snowman socks and all. Life will never be dull with Melody around, that's for sure!
