For the past couple of months, the highlight of my day has been getting to see a certain four year old. What she will say or ask is always a surprise and never fails to put a smile on my face. Today was no different.
"Can I sing you a song?"
Well, of course! She then proceeded to sing "The House That Built Me" by Miranda Lambert. If you follow the link, you'll see that it's not exactly a "kids song," but she knew every word! Cutest thing ever!
There's a line in there about a dog that's buried under a tree in the back yard, that I guess she picked up on.
"My Mom had a dog named Otter that they buried in the back yard under a tree and well, that's probably what we'll do with our dog, Dixie."
Her Mom could probably read the surprised, sad look on my face so she informed me that Dixie was alive and healthy. Ah, but I like a girl who can plan ahead.
Thanks for brightening my day little buddy.
