On the way home one night last week, I explained to the girls that Eric and I were going to go out on Saturday night to celebrate our anniversary and that they would get to stay home and play with a friend of ours.

Anna liked that the word has her name sound at the beginning of it, and she wanted to know what it was. I told them that an anniversary is like a birthday, but not for a person - a birthday for something else special that happened - and that this anniversary was for when Eric and I got married.

They absorbed this, and then Tessa proclaimed, "No! It's a Tessaversary."
