Several months ago my three-year-old daughter Audrey asked my husband, "Daddy, can you pick up our house?" "Nope, I sure can't," replied Dad. Audrey, who is used to her Father teasing her, looked up with disbelief. "Be serious!" she shouted.
Obviously, little Audrey was slightly over estimating her Dad's abilities, but I would have to say that she is closer to the mark than most. She sees her Father for what he is - a hero. In her eyes, there is no one wiser, stronger, or more brave than her Daddy. There is not a beast so terrifying, that her Father would hesitate for even a moment if she was in danger. She knows this, and that is why she calls for her Daddy when she has had a bad dream. Like most young children, she understands what most adults seem to have forgotten - Kids need their Dads!
