These days Lillian is very concerned with whether she’s been good (i.e., well-behaved) or not. Many times a day she’ll ask “Have I been good today?” or “Am I being good?”
This evening we needed to tidy up the living room, and she threw herself into it very enthusiastically.
Later she asked, as usual, “Daddy, have I been good today?”
And as usual, I said “Well, pretty good…”
“Why only pretty good?”
“Well, OK, you’ve been good. Very good.”
“You mean the most perfect good ever?” she said in a genuinely curious voice.
