For the love of a brain
Me: That's good, honey.
Belle (turning to look at me with almost frightening intensity): I love him aaaaallllllll the way THROUGH HIS BRAIN!
Me (undecided between concern and amusement): Really?
Belle (settling back down): Yes. I do. And Mommy?
Belle (in an off-hand sort of way): I love you, too.
Me (trying not to let the fear creep into my voice): All the way through my brain?
Belle (matter-of-factly): No. I love you UP TO your brain. (Then resuming the look of adoration she has had toward her father since birth) But I love Daddy THROUGH his brain!
Frankly, since I'm not sure what it means, I'm not sure I'm offended.
