Melt.

My adorable 5yr old daughter follows me into the kitchen this evening, holding a small piece of paper.  “Daddy, I found this card,” she says, “Under the couch. I don’t know what it is.”

I know what it is.  “What does it say?” I ask.

She begins to read.  She’s just learning how. “Not…of…an…of an … a g e…”

“Age,” I say.

“Age,” she says, “Not of an age…but…for….all time.”

“Thanks Sweetie,” I tell her, “That’s one of Daddy’s Shakespeare cards.  You can just leave it on the counter.”

🙂 I can’t tell you people how it melts my heart to hear words like that coming out of my kids’ mouths.
