Jonny (3 days from 6 years old): Did you and Daddy fall in love?
Me: Yes! We sure did.
Jonny: Were you 25?
Me: No, we were 19. (Gulp. Babies.)
Jonny: But how did you fall in love with Daddy?
Hope (3 years old): You fell, Mama??
Me: Yes, I fell right on Daddy! But he caught me! (Hope smiling with waffle in her cheeks.)
Jonny: How did you fall in love, Mama? (Children are so persistent.)
Me: Well, I turned around one day when he said my name, and I looked into his big blue eyes and fell in love right there. (Carmin Hall, Indiana Wesleyan University, Marion Indiana, 1993 :)
Jonny: That's funny!
Me: Yup, it's pretty funny. And wonderful.
