MenorahFirst candle tonight, and I actually made some good choices in the gift-buying. A happy little girl–happy that latkes were ready when she got home from chess practice, happy with her presents, happy to say the blessings, light a candle, sing some songs–is the best Chanuka present a dad could ever have. We even cracked some walnuts (although I couldn’t find the dreidel) and played a game of Operation. Chanuka’s good when you’re a kid, but it can be even better when you’re a parent.
