I am on the phone with Sophie right now. She’s describing the great day she had with Grammy and Chloe – they went apple picking.
When I asked Sophie if she had a good day, she couldn’t have been more effusive. “It was the best day of my life because I got different kinds of apples.” Wow. Who would have thought? Especially since Sophie’s not a particularly huge fan of apples. But she did discover the joys of eating apples with peanut butter. That apparently counts for a lot.
Chloe, straight shooter that she is, didn’t get on the phone to tell me about her day. She did, however, tell me how much she disliked the new background for the blog. “Too dark!” she exclaimed. Oh well. You can’t please everyone all the time. I actually thought she’d appreciate the more sophisticated look. There’s no accounting for 9-year old taste. She’d be thrilled if the background were bubble gum balls.
