Settling For The Crumbs

Zoe's been in a particularly trying phase lately, so I'm hoping that Friday--which is her fourth birthday--will mark her entrance into The Age of Reason. Ha ha. Lucky for her that she's so darn cute. And--lucky for me, given her recent behavior patterns--lately she's turned into very much of a Daddy's girl.

A few weeks ago we went pumpkin picking with some playgroup friends. We had a great day at Elm Knoll Farm in Enfield, CT: gorgeous weather, lots of outdoor play activities, a hayride, a picnic. That night, when I was putting her to bed, I asked her our "regular" question: "So, what was the best part of your day?" She promptly answered, "When Daddy came home from work." She then added, "I love him more more more more more more more more more more than you. But"--as an afterthought--"I like you an eensy bit."

That's motherhood, I guess. Even when we bake the cookies, sometimes we just get the crumbs.
