Anna is playing quietly and looks up to ask me, "Is Peyton Manning already married?"
"Yes, babe, he is."
"Well, is Eli Manning married?"
Again, "Yes, he is."
The wind? Out of her sails. Completely.
"Oh. (She's so sad that she can no longer sit up. She flops down on her back and drops the My Little Pony she'd been playing with.) That makes my heart so sad. I wanted to marry Peyton Manning."
Chris had a cow. Then he had a phone conversation with her informing her that at the age of 4 she need not be concerned about who she would marry. Not for a long, long time.
