Tonight over dinner we mentioned something that happened when Pearl was three.
“Mummy!” exclaimed Babess. “When Pearl was only three, I was a little born baby!”
“Ahhh, no, you weren’t sweetie. You weren’t born until Pearl was six. Even Fainjin wasn’t a little baby when Pearl was three.”
She furrowed her brow. “Was I in your tummy?”
“No, you weren’t even in my tummy.”
“Wha…?! Did I just appear?!”
While we smiled and tried to come up with an answer to that, Fainjin helpfully chimed in, “We weren’t even babies!”
Then as we started to agree with him, he went on, “We were grown-ups.”
