One Day, Today
Every day I go to class with daddy. He says, "little one, everyone has something they need to learn", and then he gives me my word of the day. Today the word is 'scholar'.
I can't say it yet, but one day I will.
We stop in front of a coffee shop. He points to a square with red letters inside.
"Open", says daddy while he points to the sign. He looks at me. I think he wants me to say it too, but for now I can only babble.
After class daddy and I walk to the used book store. Daddy reads me stories until Nana comes to get me.
He gives me hugs and kisses and tells me he loves me with his hands. He says it's called signing. "One day", says daddy and off to work he goes.
While Nana drives home she plays songs for me to listen to.
At home I play outside.
Nana yells, "NO, NO" when she sees me in the dirt, but then she says, "Oh nevermind, playing is learning".
When daddy gets home we play heads shoulders and he tickles me. "Laugh it up so you can practice those sounds".
Then he puts me into my crib and I said "da-da".
Daddy laughed and jumped and hugged me tight. "You're the smartest child in the world", says daddy and I know he's right.
