Have I been good?

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.
