Ellie [with elbows on table staring intently at our wedding photo]: Mommy, why did you marry Daddy?
Me [in awe of such a thoughtful question]: Well honey, I love Daddy. He makes me laugh and I have so much fun with him. Sometimes when that happens people get married.
Ellie: Did you get married HERE [gesturing at our house]?
Me: No. We got married in Illinois.
Ellie [quiet for a minute then sitting down with the saddest face ever]: So I was HERE all by myself and lonely.
Me: Oh no. You weren’t lonely. It was before you were HERE.
Ellie: So you DID get married HERE [gesturing at the house]?
Me: No honey, we got married in Illinois.
Ellie: Then I WAS HERE and all lonely.
Repeat 47 times before Mommy’s brain leaked out of her left Eustachian tube.
