Anna approached me the other day with the following question:
"Mom, what's the 'A' word"?
Stunned, and at a loss for an explanation, (and thinking I might need to have a talk with other members of this household), I coolly replied:
"What 'A' word"?
"You know. The one we weren't allowed to say during Lent."
me: " Ohhhhhhh! Alleluia."
