A transcript from a recent conversation with my four year old:
J: Mom, you don't wear high heels very much any more.
Me: True. They usually hurt my feet.
J: You should give them away. Unless you have another baby. Then you might need them.
Me: (thinking) ??? As if I'd even try to wear heels when I'm pregnant.
J: (continuing on without even noticing strange looks appearing on her mother's face) If you have another baby you don't need to get married again.
Me: No, they do let you keep the same husband for more than one baby. (muttering under breath) Not that there aren't people who don't seem to understand that.
J: It's good that you don't have to get married again, but I do like wedding dresses. They are pretty, and you can wear high heels.
Me: Ah Ha! It does all come back to shoes.
