Tattoo 140

After listening carefully to a grown-up conversation about tattoos, our girl added to the conversation:

"If I got a tattoo, it would be "12 x 12 = 140",  so I could remember that one. " 

I smiled all the way to my toes but didn't laugh out-loud until later (I didn't want her to feel silly) and gently told her it was 144 not 140.  

Though her thoughts weren't perfectly formed, in her childish way, she saw the true meaning of our conversation:  tattoos are reminders.  

Hopefully they are beautiful reminders.
