Conversation from today:

Matthew: “Mommy, did you know that Ms. [insert teacher’s name here] is divorced?”

Me: “No.  How do you know that?”

Matthew: “Because she told me.  I asked about her husband and she said she doesn’t have one.”

Peter (from the other room): “That doesn’t mean she’s divorced!  Maybe she never got married!”

Matthew: “Well then how do you explain her little 4-going-on-5 year old son?”

Peter:  [Pause.] “I have no idea.”

I love that both my boys – even the 11 year old – could not imagine how a woman could have a child outside of marriage.  It was like, in their minds, such a thing doesn’t exist.

I wish I could keep them little forever.
