I was playing a little game of "guess what I like about you" with the boys on a long trip from Mississippi to Tennessee, telling each of them things I loved about them. (Anaya was in the other car with Daddy.) "Sethie, I love how you make me laugh! You have a great sense of humor, like Daddy," I told him. "That was part of why I wanted to marry Daddy, because he made me laugh so much."
He chortled in glee. "I want to marry Daddy too!"
"You can't do that," I chuckled. "Remember, boys marry girls, and girls marry boys."
He was silent for a few moments. "Mommy," he burst out, "when I get big, I want to mawwy you!"
