Tonight we walked by a lady’s house who has 18 cats. Our 7-year-old daughter said that she wants cats when she grows up. My wife, who is allergic to cats, told our daughter that she could have all the cats she wanted when she got older.
I said, “But remember, Mommy is allergic to cats. If you have a bunch of cats that means Mommy can’t come and visit you at your house.”
Without even thinking about it she said, “That’s OK. Daddy can come and visit.”
