   It all began as we were standing in front of the bathroom mirror, me fixing Amanda's blonde hair. I said, “I love you, Amanda。” “And, I love you,” she replied. “Oh, yeah,” I taunted. “Well, I love you more。” Her eyes lit up as she recognized the cue for the start of another “I love you more” match. “Nuh-uh,” she laughed, “I love you the most。” “I love you bigger than a volcano!” I countered—a favorite family phrase in these battles of love. “But, Mom, I love you from here to China。” A country she's learning about from our new neighbors up the street. We volleyed back and forth a few favorite lines. “I love you more than peanut butter。” “Well, I love you more than television。” “I even love you more than bubble gum。” It was my turn again, and I made the move that usually brings victory. “I love you bigger than the universe!” On this day, however, Amanda was not going to give up. I could see she was thinking. “Mom,” she said in a quiet voice, “I love you more than myself。”I stopped. Dumbfounded,overwhelmed by her sincerity. Here I thought I knew more than she did. I thought I knew at least everything that she knew. However, my four-year-old daughter knows more about love than her 28-year-old mom。

  事情发生时,我们俩正站在浴室的镜子前,我替阿曼达梳理她的一头金发。我说,“我爱你,阿曼达。”“我也爱你,”她回答。“噢,是的,”我嘲弄她。“好吧,我爱你更多。”当她意识到另一场关于“我爱你”的口舌之争拉开帷幕时,她的眼睛闪闪发亮。“呐,”她大笑着说,“我最爱你。”我回敬道:“我对你的爱比一座火山还要大!”这句话是我们爱的争夺战中最受欢迎的家庭用语。“可,妈妈,我对你的爱从这里一直延伸到中国。”这是她从我们街那头新来的邻居那儿学到的国家名称。我们用这些美言你来我往地斗了几个回合。“我爱你胜过爱花生酱。”“噢,我爱你胜过爱电视机。”“我爱你甚至超过爱泡泡糖。”又轮到我了,我决定使出杀手锏:“我对你的爱超越整个宇宙!”每次用这招都会胜出的。可今天,阿曼达不打算“善罢甘休”。我看得出她正绞尽脑汁。“妈妈,”她平静地说,“我爱你胜过爱我自己。”我顿时无言以对,目瞪口呆。女儿的真诚让我折服。我原以为,我比她懂得更多。我以为,至少她知道的事情我都知道。可是,我那4岁的宝贝女儿比她28岁的妈妈更懂得爱。
