Best words spoken by anyone anywhere anytime ever

My daughter is working on her newest puzzle, the trickiest one by far. She asked me to help. I told her I would help after cleaning the breakfast dishes.

When I turned around, I was shocked to see how much of the puzzle she had already put together on her own.

“Clara, how did you put so much of that puzzle together already?”

“Trying, Daddy,” she said. “Trying is very important.”

It was my single greatest moment in parenting ever. My daughter could go unfed and unwashed and revert to a feral state this week and I would still feel like a parental champion.
