On the way to the library today Amia and I went trick or treating! It was so fun. After about hitting 3 houses together Amia insisted on doing it all herself. It went something like this...
A: Don't go up the stairs, dad.
Me: You want to do it by yourself?
Cautiously walks up stairs to big house, knocks on door, almost falling into one house that had a big step at the entry way, looks up at the person and stares. Person leans down with candy, engages in friendly chit chat, Amia takes a piece of candy and puts it in her bucket. Looks at person, person says, Bye!, Amia slowly turns around and walks back.
Me: Say, thank you!
A: Slowly turns--thak you.
Turns to me excited and says...
A: One more house, daddy!
Then we went to the library as Amia inspected her loot, wanting to eat some, later saying excitedly...
A: It tastes so much like candy I want to eat it now!
That was a good time.
