One day when my daughter was 4-1/2 years old, we took her for a car ride. It was probably an auspicious day. We saw many wedding cars along the way, each one more luxurious than the last. My daughter gazed excitedly out of the window. After a while her father teased her, “When you get married, do you want to ride in a limousine?”
Sinking back into the seat, she answered instantly in a serious tone, “We will see when the time comes.”
After that she didn't take a second look. Once more, her reply shocked and amazed me. How did she manage to remain so emotionally unmoved at that age?
