Interlude 1: Simone responds to a new cousin.

19 Dec

1.

Simone has a new baby cousin. Here’s what she said when I informed her of her cousin’s birth:

Simone (smiling): I’m really glad she didn’t die one second after she was born.

Me: Me, too. That’s morbid, though.

Simone (with an even bigger smile): Yeah, right? I know.

And with Beth, she had this to say.

Simone (looking at a picture of her just-born cousin): What’s that thing?

Beth: That’s the umbilical cord clamp.

Simone: Is she a girl? Why does she have short hair? Why is she naked? She looks like Jesus.
