My daughter Julia came to live with me two years ago for school. It isn't easy for me to raise someone who is practically my nine-year-old clone, but that is exactly what I find I am doing with Julia. Through our judo and soccer practices, reading, writing and arithmetic, Girl Scouts, and Japanese language classes, we occasionally have a conversation that connects us both in a sometimes deep and usually humorous way. Hopefully, you will be as entertained as we are.
As Julia’s social life has jumped off the scale, she prefers talking instead of eating; which has father annoyed as he tries to get her to eat breakfast before school…
Julia: Daddy, blah blah blah blah blah…
Daddy: Come on! Eat! Eat!
Julia: I want to chat-chat, talk-talk!
Julia and Daddy wish you a very merry Christmas!
