anniversary conversation

Wesley asked me today, “What’s an anniversary?” (It’s our anniversary today.)

I explained, “It’s the day of the year when a couple got married. Or whatever–there are anniversaries of other things, but if someone just says ‘anniversary’ they usually mean ‘wedding anniversary.’ So, Daddy and I got married on January 3, so this is our anniversary.”

Wide-eyed, he asked, “You guys are MARRIED?”

I clarified that we are, in fact, married.

He said, “So anyone who is a boy and a girl or a boy and a boy or a girl and a girl gets an anniversary now in Maryland!”

Spot on, pal.
