The four-year-old says

Amanda is fascinated by her parents' ages. More specifically with our age difference. She keeps asking questions about who was born when, and how many days, months, years apart we are. So it was no surprise when she started on this oft-visited conversation earlier this evening.

Amanda: "Who was born first, Mommy or Daddy?"
Ron: "Daddy was."
Amanda: "But your birthday is after Mommy's - yours is in September and hers is in August."
Me: "Daddy's older than Mommy. Way older (rib rib rib)."
Ron (mock hurt on his face): "Hey."
Me: "Think of it this way. Daddy was almost ten years old when Mommy was born."
Amanda: (Eureka moment)"Oooohhhh! Daddy, did you visit Mommy at the hospital then?"
silence
Ron: "Um, not really."

I get a kick out of the way Amanda's brain spits out these great conversations. I love her so much.
