I recently was watching our friends’ 7-year-old daughter, Abby, and while we were drawing at Dan and my dining room table, our conversation went something like this:
“So are you excited about Easter?” I asked.
Distracted by the work of art she was creating, Abby muttered, “Uh-huh.”
Trying to continue our lively discussion I inquired, “What are you doing this year?”
She stopped her pencil and thought for a second. “I think pretty much the usual stuff.”
When Abby resumed her refrigerator-worthy creation, she asked, “What about you, Jennifer?”
