My father has been visiting with us over the past 2 weeks. A few days ago, this happened . . .
BIG SISTER: "Papa, how old was Mommy when you adopted her?"
PAPA: "Three, I think."
--30 minutes later--
PAPA: "Ashley, Big Sister asked how old you were when I adopted you."
ME: "What did you say, Dad?"
PAPA: "I told her you were three."
ME: "Why did you say that when I'm not really adopted."
PAPA: "I thought I'd leave the explaining up to you."
