Wait, did our mothers put you up to this?
The Scene: MB and I are at our neighbors' (R & his wife J), watching the Colts-Patriots game. We're sitting side-by-side on the couch, and R & J's two daughters, ages 3 and 5, are sitting on / with me.
Three, examining my ears: What are these? Are these earrings?
Me: Yep, those are earrings.
Three: Why do you have earrings in your ears?
Me: Uh...because I do? Doesn't Mommy have earrings? No, I guess not.
Three: Mommy has an earring in her nose.
J: *laughs, points to her nose stud*
Me: Oh, yeah. I guess she does.
Three: Do you have an earring in your nose?
Three, pointing at MB: Are you his wife?
Me: Yes, I am.
Three, pointing to my hand: Cuz that's your wedding ring?
Three: Did you get married?
Me: Yes, I did.
Three: Do you have a baby?
The Scene: a few hours later, same couch
Five, wisely: When people get married, they have babies.
