Almost four is a lovely age. Petra has many many funny, clever, and wonderful things to say for herself. She sings, she dances, she runs and jumps, she’s endlessly excited about the small doings in her world, she’s kind and thoughtful, and she’s the smartest person in the house by a considerable margin.
I particularly love the way she talks – the leaps of logic and unexpected connections make her a fascinating conversationalist. Yesterday I told her I loved her. She replied, “You love me so much you never want to lose me in hide and seek.”
