4-YEAR-OLD: "Mommy tomorrow is Spanish class. I'm going to ask Ms. Ana how old she is."
ME: "You probably shouldn't do that. I woman never likes telling her age."
4-YEAR-OLD: "What's a woman?"
ME: "You know, a big girl."
4-YEAR-OLD: "So I'm a woman?"
ME: "No, sweetheart... you won't be woman for a very long time. "
4-YEAR-OLD: "How long?"
ME: "Well, at least 14 years."
4-YEAR-OLD: "14!...(pause)…is that long? Count with me to 14 so I can see how far away that is."
