Little Girl, Big Imagination

“Daddy, I have a baby in my tummy.”

You do? Can I listen?

“OK.” (Lies down on the kitchen rug, lifts up her shirt)

Oh, I hear it! Now, you have to make sure you eat your dinner to stay healthy for the baby.

“Yeah. I know. Okay. Bye.” (Gets up and leaves).

Daddy shakes his head. Can she just stay this age forever?
