Seems profound to me

The Girl Child did not nap. Instead, she came downstairs and decided to color. That's fine. I kept her company. In the middle of her coloring, she looked up at me and pronounced:

Pappa, when I walk in my Summer it tastes like pear.

I decided that statement was profound and decided to probe no further into it than that.

I hope my Summer tastes like pear this year. And yours!

Mmmmmmmmmm, but I think I go for more of a cherry flavor.

She's something else, your daughter. A good something else. Glad I got to meet her througgh your blog.

Write down everything Girl Child says. She's a gold mine of humor and observations. She sound like a scream to be around.

BTW. When I wlked my dogs in the summer it always seemed to smell like pooh.

I hope your summer tastes like pear, too.

What a jewel you have in GC.

I think she's got a good point there. :)

Bright girl. There's nothing quite so refreshing on a hot summer day as slices of chilled pear. Mmmm...

I hear the makings of a writer in her voice.

Are you *sure* she's only four?

Write her a song!

"When I walk in my Summer it tastes like pear. I am the Girl Child. Goo goo goojoob."

Sounds like the GC has never walked in the summer in the City...

Sweet. Could be the start of a meme. What do you want your summer to taste like?

Summer, in the city, a bite of my pear tastes so gritty......

Lovely. She's got the soul of a poet...and, I suspect, a bit of a limerick-et in there, too.
