The joy of a three year old…

I am enjoying the day with Johanna….

She is a great conversationalist and I am fascinated by how our connections to people start at such a young age….

These have been some of the recurring (in some form or another) phrases from today….

Did you know my Dad’s name is Andy…

Did you know my Mom’s name is Suzi…

I love my brother’s so much…

They love me even more….

I am sure Papa is missing me…

I wonder who Papa is sharing his ice cream with…

I bet Beppe and Beppe Dot wished I was with them…

Do you know how to make peanut butter and jelly…

I think I am Dutch’s favorite three-year old girl….

Aunt Trish, do you love me so much…

Did you know Alex Avila is my tiger…

Aunt Trish, I have so many friends, maybe more than you….

And I nod and smile and chuckle and marvel at this three-year old wonder. She has taught me how to care for her baby doll, kissing her dolls head when it cries and corrects me when I thought the baby was crying by telling me she doesn’t really cry. She has shown me today that she is important to others and others are important to her. There is no doubt that God created us for relationship and spending a day with the innocence of this relational heart is plain delightful!

And her closing thought to me as I lay in bed with her and watch the Tigers is Aunt Trish, please put your computer down now cause I want to snuggle and go to sleep…..

And with that I am going to scratch her back and sing a song!
