Daddy, are you a Prince?

Alexandra is entering that 1,000,000 questions phase of life. It's cute, but yes can get tiresome as well. Yesterday was our 14th wedding anniversary. While we weren't really able to celebrate it, we did dig out the wedding video. I had not seen it in years. Hell, it's on VHS and I wasn't even sure if our old VCR still worked. But it did and we watched it. Alexandra was captivated by it. It was so adorable. I enjoyed it too: seeing how we looked then vs. how we look now, seeing old friends who are still friends, and seeing and remembering all those who have since passed away. Alexandra noted the conspicuous absence of her little brother and all of her cousins with the exception of Jacquet, who was not recognizable to her because he was so young. After the long...long...long ceremony and the marathon of pictures, the video moved onto the reception. Alexandra wanted to know about receptions. And then the first dance. She wanted to know what we were doing. Using an analogy I was pretty sure she'd get, I said "Honey, it's like when Cinderella dances with the Prince."

"Daddy, are you a Prince?"

I think there were tears all around the room.
