Brotherly Love

A few weeks ago, my daughter (age 5) asked me if I thought she would marry her brother (age 3) when she grew up. "No," I said. "People don't marry their brothers."

She came to me about a week later with a follow-up question. "What if you marry a bad person?"

I said something about how that could happen, so it is important to be careful and find a nice person.

"Like you did when you married Daddy?" she probed. 

I concurred.  She sighed and said, "The only really nice person I know is [my brother]!"
