Graham’s favorite color


About two years ago, my three-year-old daughter, Piper, decided she absolutely hated the color green and would even separate the green toys from all of the others, exiling them. When Jen told Graham about this, and showed him a picture of her with her pile of green marbles set away from the group, instead of being insulted at her lack of love for Graham’s favorite color, he had a beautiful solution. He said to Jen, “Maybe when I get older, I can marry that girl, and we will be like Jack Spratt and his wife, only it will be with green things.”
