Tonight, about halfway through "Bastogne," we heard Lorien singing upstairs. I went up to put her back to bed, and here was our conversation:
Lorien: What are you doing?
Me: Watching a movie.
Lorien: What are you watching?
Me: It's called Band of Brothers. It's a movie about the Army, because Daddy was in the Army. The Army's job is to protect us. That's why Daddy is so good at protecting us.
Me: No, he did that when he was a man, but a younger man.
Lorien: (Thought about that for a minute.) But when did he come back to our house?
A short discussion ensued about the time before mommy and daddy were married. I'm pretty sure it went over her head.
Lorien: Why are you watching a movie?
Me: We like to do that when you guys are in bed, because we like each other.
Lorien: Josiah and I like each other too.
I'm glad you do, babe. I'm so glad you do.
