A Little Love

Last week when my wife was picking my daughter up from daycare, one of the 3 1/2 year old girls said "I love Justin Bieber," to which my 2 3/4 year old daughter replied "I love Pinky Pie and Apple Jack," two of the My Little Pony ponies. It's a very sweet statement, although she does tend to love everything. Often on the morning drive to daycare, she'll chatter along in the backseat: "I love bunnies, and I love kitties, and I love puppies, and I love monkeys, and I love birds, and I love turtles, and I love froggies." You get the picture. Everything is butterflies and rainbows. She loves just about everything but spiders. Those, I'm required to hunt down and remove. Especially the pretend ones. They're far more numerous than the real spiders.

I love my daughter's innocence, although I do think she watches too much TV, I am thankful that she mostly just watches shows like Max and Ruby (where the heck are their parents?), Strawberry Shortcake, and My Little Pony.
