Grace and I were sitting next to one another on an airplane trip to Los Angeles, CA. I was leafing through one of those "mind candy" gossipy magazines, and I happened upon a picture of Christina Agulera, who is currently pregnant. She was looking quite trendy.
Grace glanced at my magazine, and inquired, "Mommy, how come God sometimes gives teenagers babies?"
I thought, "Yikes! What? Already? She is maturing too fast for my liking."
Since I didn't want to have that conversation on an airplane in close proximity to too many perfect strangers, I said, "I'm not sure Grace. What do you think?"
Grace shrugged and moved onto her next thought.
I dodged a bullet, but for how long?
