So THAT'S What They Meant...

Today I listened, delighted, as Hot Stuff told an enthusiastic and riveting version of The Three Billy Goats Gruff to Nayna. She watched him, grinning, helping with the sound effects. It was adorable. Then, when the story was over, Hot Stuff looked at Nayna with an earnest expression on his face.

"And do you know what that story teaches us?"

"No."

"Always take advantage of small people when you get the chance."

Kiersten says, "He's wonderful. Six years and he still delights me every day."

This is beautiful!! The story is funny and priceless, but this response is just as meaningful.

I love love.
