my dearest Lily,

July 19 2013 035

on this particular day you picked out your dress like you do now every morning and you said:

“when pai gets home i am going to marry him in this dress”

marrying your pai is something you speak of often

and although i have tried to explain to you that fathers and daughters cannot marry each other and that he is already married to me, i do not blame you

as a matter of fact, i am proud and think you are quite smart for it

your pai is the most wonderful father and husband and i only hope that you will be so blessed and lucky to find someone like him when you get older

but for now, here you are marrying your pai

with love,

your mama
