On Turning 5

This morning our daughter's daycare provider told me that she had gone up to them and said "Jerry and Kathy, my birthday party is Sunday, but I won't be here. So you can ship my present to me."

As I've often told my wife, our daughter is too smart for our own good :)

On the way to daycare this morning, I told Joy that her brother had just turned 5 (the age she turns on Sunday) when I met him. Her response?

"That means mommy was a single parent..."

"Yes, mommy was a single parent when I met her."

"But how did she have a baby without being married?"


See my previous comment about said daughter's intelligence and it's affect on our own good.

Talk about opening a can of worms...I told her we would discuss that at a later date (like when she's 70 or so, I think) :)
