Happy Medium

My daughter may have a phase in between "absolutely wonderful child who melts my heart" and "fire-spitting she-demon who makes me want to sit on the railroad tracks and wait for the south-bound express".

But alas, I've yet to discover it.

Early Summer 2013

Despite now having to use a cane owing to my bad left knee, I've walked to the park/playground a few blocks from home every night this week, circled by Moiya practicing on her new bike. The weather is lovely, and something about the slant of the light from the setting sun makes the colors seem somehow richer and more beautiful. We play hide and seek or Moiya shows off on the monkey bars or I time her as she races her bike across the nearby schoolyard.

 My favorite words have become "Daddy, watch this!"

Not sure how long this phase of our lives will last nor how long she'll want my time and attention, but I intend to enjoy and treasure every second that I can.
