Tonight Alaythia wanted the usual – me sing Christmas songs with her interrupting every few words to ask what a word meant. Carols are full of strange old beautiful words, so it’s understandable – though I think I may have erred when I defined virgin as “young” (it caught me off guard!).
After a long list of earnest definition requests, she asked me: “What’s ‘life’ Mommy?” I smiled and said, “you know that one.” To which she exclaimed, “it’s NOW, Mommy!”
Wise sweet girl.
