Family Matters II

Tonight in the car, on the way to the Bar Mitzvah of the son of one of my oldest friends, Raphaela and I were discussing families, the most recent topic at Gan. We talked about the concept of sisters and brothers, and I brought examples of people we know to illustrate the point; my brothers and I, for example, my niece and nephews with whom we spent one week during our vacation in the Sates in November, and even my mother and her sisters, whom Raphaela has met as well.

Then I asked Raphaela if she had any brothers or sisters, she smiled and answered a whole-hearted, "Yes! I have a sister."

When I asked her, "Who is your sister?" Raphaela smiled again and answered, "Mommy!"
