Wednesday night, my son had difficulty falling asleep, so he came into my bedroom for a late-night chat.
We were joking about this and that, when my son suggested:
"Ima, you should wear a wig."
"Why?" I asked him, wondering why he suddently made that suggestion.
"Because it's pretty," he answered, with a sweet smile.
After a pause, he added: "...but you should get older first."
I looked at him curiously.
"Because 'age comes before beauty'," he said, with a twinkle in his eye and laughter on his lips.
