Ruby has been working on the concept of love lately. That she does not fully understand it is both not unexpected and an understatement. Point in case, the following are her quotes:
* “Daddy I love rice more than you love me”
* “Daddy Miles loves me as much as you love me”
* “Daddy I love you more than you love me”
On this last point, I tried to explain to her that it was just empirically impossible for this to be true, and that, if anything I loved her more than she loved me. As you may have guessed, she passionately defended her claim, and we eventually agreed to love each other the same amount.
On the way to Aikido on Thursday she wanted me to say I love you so so … much all the way from Oregon Expressway to class (probably about 15 minutes). I did start, but after a minute or so I had to ask permission to talk about something else.
Anyone who knows me can probably guess how excited I am about her interest in this topic. Go Ruby!
