Vange: (murmers a quick low prayer) Mom I just prayed for a safe trip.
Me: for who?
Vange: for God.
Me: where is he going?
Vange: to heaven, he is riding in his car. Then he is going to Agra.
Me: what’s he going to do in Agra?
Vange: He is going to sleep then swim.
Vange: Mom I am eating these cucumber peels kay?
Vange: If I eat these cucumber peels it make my tummy soft then it will grow a baby.
Me: oh? is that how babies come?
Vange: yes, and I am etaing lot of them, so we can have a NEW NEW baby in or family!
Vange: Daddy gives you kisses on the cheek and you turn away and say “no! no! no!”
THEN, you try to give daddy kisses on the cheek and he turns his head away from you.
Me: why do we do that?
Vange: cuz you love eachother SO much!
