As you look at Sophi, you might think it's odd that such a small child warrants such a large number of posts on our blog. But if you were to come live with us, you would realize that the number of posts that focus on her is directly proportional to the number of words that come out of her mouth:) She is a veritable cornucopia of source material!
Sophi came into our bedroom early this morning as Christi and I were praying. She quietly cuddled up to us and listened to the end of our prayer. When we were done, she gave each of us a huge hug and told us how much she loved us. As she walked away, she turned to me and said, "Dad, you need to take a shower." I asked, "Why?" Without any hesitation (or tact) she answered, "Because you stink!"
Last night, Christi and I went on a date to go see Taylor and Parker play basketball games. We got back home after Sophi was in bed. This morning Sophi asked me: "Did you see a movie last night?"
Sophi: "So you didn't see "Inside-Out?" (In case you live in a cave, this is Pixar's latest animated movie which came out last weekend.)
Me: "No. We'll see it with you."
Sophi: "But I want to know if it's good first! It says (then she whispers) shut-up. (Still whispering...) The daughter says that to her parents!"
Me: "Can we see it if it says shut-up?"
Sophi: "I don't know!"
I think it is very sweet that she is concerned about the content of the movies she watches. I love that when she wanted to know if it was good, she meant virtuous, not entertaining. What a great kid!
PS. Both boys played well in their games. Parker had his typical frenetic energy, yielding several steals, but he couldn't get his shot going and they lost by 2 points in a hard-fought game. Taylor played exceptionally well, with over 20 points, a few blocks and assists and a great defensive effort. As a young father, I had no idea how much I would enjoy (and sometimes stress over!) watching them play:)
