Happy Birthday Little Dif

Little Dif is 6 years old today!


I can tell you for certain that she takes after me. Yesterday morning, I remember her making some comment about my keys. I don't recall what I was doing at the time but I didn't really think about it any further until I went looking for them this morning. The little booger HID MY KEYS! Since I didn't drive anywhere yesterday, I didn't even know they were missing until today. After better than an hour of searching, I found them bundles up in some gift bag type tissue paper I had previously stuffed in a cubby hole on my desk. It was too funny for me to be upset about it.


Little Dif lost her first baby tooth back on Thanksgiving Day. The permanent tooth growing in has loosened the tooth next to it. Last week, I was on the phone with her and she said, "Daddy, my tooth is wobbly." I was teasing her and replied, "How do you know that it's not just your head that is wobbly and your tooth is just fine?"

She thought about this for a few seconds and said, "Well, I'll move my head around WHILE I try wiggling my tooth. If my tooth still moves then my tooth really is loose!" So of course, I told her to go ahead and do just that. She happily declared that I was not able to trick her.

Folks, that's just an amazing display of deductive reasoning by a child. She makes her daddy proud!
