"Daddy," she inquired, "why does gammy smell like the dentist?"
"Grandma went to the dentist before she got here," I answered. "She had to have a checkup because last week she had her teeth drilled."
"Yeah," she answered, "I bet the dentist drilled gammy hard."
Little miss Nickling...
We were in familial company at the time. I could not at that moment express just how proud I was of you. It would have added more awkwardness to an already awkward situation... Awkwardness to which you were enviably naive. I can only hope you understand why I could not display that pride. Moreover, I can only hope you understand, and will always understand, that you are the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. You are wonderful, amazing, sagely, talented, and most importantly, you are mine. I love you, and I will love you forever. Moments like these only serve to remind me why... And to reassure me that you are, indeed, mine. Never change. Never, ever change.
