My kids have always called Mike 'Papa'. The other morning my 5 yr old said "Mommy, do I have a father?" He was thinking of the upcoming holiday and wondering if he was going to have anyone to celebrate it with. I explained to him that Dads and Father and Papas are all the same. His face lit up with this new knowledge.
So often I see kids today to be so much more advanced than I felt we were...but it's a conversation like this that reminds me that kids are still the same, it's just the things like computers and cell phones, and the fact that they can operate them, that makes them seem older. The innocence is still there, waiting to be tapped into. Thank goodness.
