Happy Third Birthday Sophia
And now that mucky, bloody baby is three: a red-cheeked, mule-willed delight.
Nietzsche wrote that the secret of his happiness was a Yes, a No, a straight line and a goal.
Sophia has plenty of Yes (fairies, fish 'n' chips, armed violence, strawberry milkshakes, alphabet songs) and No ("green stuff", the skinny barista at one local café, Things Her Parents Ask, the letter 'J'). There are straight lines, accompanied by the stomp of tiny feet (in silver fairy shoes).
The goal is nascent, but may include dessert and Dora.
Happy birthday my lovely, and thank you for all the wrestles and lessons.
