Just a quick follow-up to yesterday’s entry… it appears that I’ve become somewhat of a local sports hero. You see, Emi received a large, purple ball for her birthday this year and she’s just recently become interested in it. She and I were rolling it back and forth between us today and she reacted as if I’d just parted the sea or lifted an X-wing out of the swamp. “BALL!” she squealed each time I rolled it back to her. “BALL!” Daddy is the greatest ball player she’s ever known. It’s good to be the daddy.
