Dinning With The Elderly say the darnedest things and there is certainly no exception to this rule at our house.  I usually plan something casual and fun for dinner on Friday nights.  Tonight, Madeline, David and I got out the making for pizza and we created our own individual pizzas.  As we sat together for dinner tonight, I see that Madeline is examining me as she is eating.  Yes, I am in terrible need of a hair dye and Madeline obviously caught onto this as she nibbled on her pizza.  A snippet of tonight's dinner conversation follows:

Madeline: Mama, you have some black in your hair.
Mama: I do? You mean brown?
Madeline: Uh-huh. And a little bit of black.....and gray.
Mama: (with resignation) MMmmmmm....
Madeline: Mama, are you getting grey hair like Grandma?
Mama: (trying to hold back laughter....and probably some tears too) Eventually
Madeline: Papa, when you go to Heaven will you have hair?
Mama: (practically rolling on floor)
Papa: I doubt it
Madeline: Is there more than one Heaven?
Papa: Nope, there's just one.
Madeline: Is it far away?
Papa: Yes, it is far away
Madeline: Far away, like Aunt Margaret's house?

Yep, kids say the darnedest things. I love this age!

Funny! I noticed your picture shows a bald man but you let the woman maintain a dye job.
