Technically, she's wrong, but ...

... I'll overlook it because she's so unspeakably cute.

"Technically, Mommy," Ramona said, "I'm practically nine."

"Really?" I asked. "How do you figure?"

"Well," she said, "I'm five, right?"


"Okay. So ... five, then there's six, seven, eight and then there's nine. So, technically, I'm almost nine."

I nodded. "You know, you're right. Technically, nine will be here before we know it."

And technically, I'll look back and wonder how it arrived with just the blink of an eye.
