Yesterday she asked a simple question…

AileenHower-146

“Mom, yesterday at aftercare I met someone from the other teacher’s class who has the same birthday as me.”

“Neat!”

“She said she was born at 9 a.m. Do you know what time of day I was born? We were trying to figure out who is older.”

“No sweetie, we don’t know what time you were born.

Sorry.”

Pause.

“But Ethiopia is ahead of America in time, right?”

“Right! So when she was born at 9 a.m., it was already 7 p.m. where you were. There’s a good chance that you were born before her because you were ahead of us by 10 hours.”

“Great! Thanks, Mom.”
