Conversations with Charlotte

The tail end of a general conversation about what she’s named Grandma and Daddy’s car while I’m braiding her hair. It gives a fairly accurate peek into the mind of this particular nearly-5 year old girl.

C: Are you a husband?

Me: No.

C: You’re a wife.

Me: Yep. A man who is married is called a husband and a woman who is married is called a wife.

C: Will I be a wife?

Me: If you get married, you will be called a wife.

C: (slight pause) But what if I marry another girl?

Me: Then you’ll both be wives.

C: Oh.

C gets a serious, concentrated look on her face like she’s working through something. I let it go for a while, but then i have to ask.

Me: What are you thinking about?

C: Whether or not we should get sundaes because it’s Sunday.
