The mouth of babes...

Tonight I was able to watch my friend's kids as she was needed by her daughter who was sick.  As I brought the boys into my house, the youngest one asked, "Where's your dad?"

I told him my dad had moved to Virginia a few years ago.

His brother came back with, "I know what he means..."

My brain finally made the connection.  "You mean my husband?"

"Yeah," he said.

"I don't have one."

Yep, here it comes..."Why?"

"I don't know, honey.  I don't know." be young and not understand it all.  Oh, wait, I'm old and I still don't understand. But his innocence made me laugh and just enjoy what I do have.
