How She Remembers It

Piper: Momma, when I was a baby and I was in the hospital, and I was born... Remember that?
Me: Yes.
Piper: Well, when I was there, Daddy was there and he was in the hospital and he was in the room too.
Me: Yes.
Piper: And when I was meeting Daddy I really liked him and I keeped [sic] him. Remember that?
Me: I remember Daddy was there.
Piper: Yes. And I liked him and I keeped him. I guess I knew that before you knew that.
Me: I believe that you did.
Piper: Yes; that's how it happened.
She 'keeped' him.


  1. My writer's heart turned to mush. The kind of story that can be told over and over for years to come. Beautiful.
