Tomorrow she'll be getting her drivers licence

The other night at dinner I decided to see if I could shake Mark up a little.  "Hey, Lily, did you tell Daddy that you kissed Matthew?"

She nodded yes and shoved a fork in her mouth.

"Um, no you didn't!" I swear his voice had climbed a half octave.

"Oh, right.  No, I didn't."  She kept eating, ignoring Mark in that way five-year-olds through the ages have so perfected.

"Lily, why did you kiss Matthew?" he asked, very calmly, I might add.

She rolled her eyes, shrugged her shoulders and replied, "Because I love him."

Duh, Daddy.  Because she LOVES him.  Of course.
