6:23 a.m.

"Daddy... Daddy!"

The call comes every morning, typically within a few minutes of 7 a.m. Sometimes sing-song style..."DAAA-dddyyy... DAAAAA-dddyy," sometimes as a sharp staccato burst... "DAD... DAD!" This morning it came at 6:23 a.m. Ava, calling out from her room. The sing-song variety.

I rolled out of bed and stumbled into her room and said good morning, asked what she wanted. (Always the same answer to this question)

"I want to go downstairs."

"Ava," I said, "It's early... do you know what time it is?"

"Thirties."

"What time?"

"It's thirties! It's wake-up time!"

Two minutes later Madison was up and came walking into Ava's room with the same request, "let's go downstairs."

So we did.
