Zoey and I were on our way home from her school this afternoon, and I told her, "We're going home to get Daddy, then we're going to go play at NiNi's house."

"Oh," she said, and got quiet again for a few seconds. Then she added, "Daddy is cool."

I almost called him to tell him :) But since I had just hung up with him a couple minutes prior to this little announcement, I hesitated to call him, and instead told him how cool he is when we got home.

I also made sure he knows that if Zoey EVER says anything flattering about me, he is absolutely allowed to call me, anytime, anywhere…
