Candidness of children

sunny 97 °F

As I held Sophie's hand in mine, I was walking a few feet in front of Nadine and Dominic and out of earshot.

I leaned over and asked her, "Would you be my girlfriend?"

"Daddy, I am too young."

I completely agree with her quality response. I hope she answers like that for another 25 years.

She further added, "When I am older, you will be dead."

"What?!?!?" I assured her that I will probably live for a long time.

So I decided to ask her one more probing question.

"So you'll be sad when I am dead, right?"

She pondered her answer for several seconds and quipped, "I am not sure."
