At bedtime tonight, I told Little D I would love her for her entire life.

Her response?

“Can I live to be 100?”

“Of course,” I said.

And so I took it upon my 34-year-old self to tell her how:

Take care of your body and your mind.

Be healthy. Don’t smoke, eat good food, exercise every day.

Read a lot.

Travel. See interesting things and meet interesting people.

Be nice. Having good friends in life keeps you young and healthy.

Work hard at everything you do.

Laugh a lot. Dance a lot. Sing a lot.

Get lots of sleep…and start now.

I sure hope my advice works.

Good night, sweet girl.
