The other day I was doing my Dance Dance Revolution exercise routine in the living room when Daphne came in. (She gets very entranced watching the Japanese animation characters dance in the background.) As I switched from one song to another, the background dancer dudes in suits turned into a couple of background dancer girls. "Look Mommy!" said Daphne, "The daddies are gone!" "Where did they go?" I asked mindlessly, trying not to mess up my rhythm. "Oh. They went to work." she said. It made me laugh so hard that I failed the song. But I love that she called them daddies and that it made perfect sense to her that those guys in suits must have gone to work. That's what daddies do!
