Today Anika and I were looking up some history stuff on the internet. We’ve been reading some Little House on the Prairie, and Anika had a bunch of questions that we were finding answers for.
We were talking about how long different people lived, and she started talking about death and the age at which people die. Suddenly she turned to me and said, “Mommy, you’re going to die soon! You’re old! You’re almost 40!!!”
I have never even thought of describing myself as “almost 40”.
Thanks for that, Anika.
