"Why are mommies girls?" Tyler asks me.
"Because God made us that way."
"Yes, but why? I want to know why you are a girl."
I wasn't sure how far we were going to take this: philosophy, anatomy - this questions lends many directions.
"When I was a baby inside Grandma, God decided that he wanted me to be a girl. And girls are the ones who grow up to be mommies."
Tucker piped in, "Yes, and when God made you into a girl, he had two little boys on his mind. He thought, I want to make two very good brothers, so I need to make their mommy now.'"
Just when I think he's not listening, he drops a nugget like that in my lap.
You are right, sweet Tuck. When God made me, he was thinking about you.
