卡莉帮爸爸把他的行李箱推到门口。

“明天下午我就回来啦。”爸爸说。

“那谁帮我洗澡呢?谁给我讲睡前故事?谁早上给我做薄饼?”卡莉问。

“奶奶会呀。”爸爸说。

“我知道,”卡莉还是有些不舍,“但那就不一样啦。”

“我打赌,你也会喜欢奶奶的方式的。”爸爸给卡莉一个紧紧的拥抱。

确实一切都不一样了。洗澡时,奶奶用了很多肥皂,但多余的泡沫能做出完美的泡沫胡子;睡觉前,奶奶用几种不同的声音读故事,但她会不厌其烦地把卡莉最喜欢的部分讲上一遍又一遍;吃早餐时,奶奶做出的薄饼并不圆,但她会让卡莉加很多蓝莓在上面。

爸爸回来时,卡莉跳进他的臂弯。

“过得怎么样呀?”爸爸问。

“太棒啦!奶奶的方式确实不一样,”卡莉说,“但我确实也喜欢她的方式!”


阅读提示

爸爸的一次出门引起了卡莉的忧虑,她担心自己适应不了奶奶来照顾自己。可事实证明,虽然奶奶做很多事情的方式都与爸爸不一样,但卡莉渐渐发现自己也喜欢上了奶奶的方式。爱的方式虽有变化,但唯一不变的是爱本身。

Callie helped her dad roll his suitcase to the door.

“I’ll be back tomorrow afternoon,” Dad said.

“Who will give me a bath? And read me a bedtime story? And make pancakes in the morning?” asked Callie.

“Grandma will,” said Dad.

“I know,” said Callie, “but it won’t be the same.”

“I bet you’ll like Grandma’s ways too,” said Dad, giving Callie a squeeze.

It was not the same. At bath time, Grandma used a lot of soap.

But the extra bubbles made a perfect sudsy beard.

At bedtime, Grandma read the book with different voices.

But she read Callie’s favorite part over and over again.

At breakfast, Grandma’s pancakes weren’t circles.

But she let Callie add lots of blueberries to her pancakes.

When Dad came home, Callie jumped into his arms.

“How’d it go?” he asked.

“Great! Grandma doesn’t do things the same,” said Callie, “and I like her way too.”
