temple: mommy, tell me again about how satchel wanted me before i was even a baby.
satchel (chiming in sweetly while sitting next to her in the back seat of the car): temple, i wanted you because...
temple: no, i want mommy to tell me satchel, not you. about how you loved me and called me lova.
me: well, temple, he wanted you because he knew you were coming. and he waited very patiently.
temple: i know, but why?
me: because before you were human babies together, you were spirit babies together and he was waiting for you to come play with him.
temple: yeah, but he doesn't really play with me that much.
