Before leaving for Honey’s house today, Joelle informed me, “I love Uncle Danny.” I smiled and said that she should tell him that.

After their visit, I asked Chris if she had told Danny that. He said, “He got the whole, ‘I love you all the way to the Milky Way and back.'” (In case anyone wonders where she got that, I taught it to her.) Then Chris laughed and said, “but Danny didn’t quite get the gist of what she was saying.” Danny apparently said back, “Huh, maybe we can have one of those after lunch.” Joelle looked quizzically at him and Honey intervened with the proper interpretation.
