Valentine Love

The other day E and I were preparing valentine cards for her class and friends. She pointed to a picture of Hello Kitty dressed like a cupid.

"Mommy, what's that?"

"It's called a cupid. On Valentine's Day people pretend that cupid shoots people with arrows so that they will love each other." I know, not the best explanation, but it was what I came up with when put on the spot.

E continued working on the valentines as she thought this over. A minute later she said, "Well, good thing I don't need that."

I was curious - did she really understand what cupid was? So I just asked, "What do you mean?"

E then said matter-of-factly, "Cause, you know, I have Grayson."
