older wiser smarter

Today is Caroline's 6th birthday, and she is feeling very worldly, it seems.

We were talking about some of the teachers at her school who just had babies, and both babies were girls.  This led to her informing me that there are more girls than boys in our part of the world.

I said, "Yes, you're right.  And you know what else?  Women live longer than men!"

She sat straight up and got a big grin, "REALLY?!"

"Yep, it's true.  Women have a longer life expectancy than men do."

She tilted her head and patted me on the shoulder and said with a knowing nod, "We are seriously the lucky ones, my friend.  We are the lucky ones."
