And this is just one of the exchanges we had today:
Me (to Mr. O): I'm ready to go when you are, Honey.
Ellie: Mom, is Honey a boy name?
Ellie: Then why are you calling dad Honey?
Me: Well, that's what people say to people they love, that's why I sometimes call you honey, too.
Ellie (quiet for a moment, then with surprise):Oh. You love him?
I've been inspired by the annual list Christina at My Topography makes (lower sidebar) and am in the middle of compiling my own 40 ways to celebrate 40. Do you have any suggestions for me? What sorts of things would be on your list?
