Another Lesson by Lily

Lily read a book about Benjamin Franklin at pre-school this week.
“How fascinating!” I exclaimed. “What did you learn about him?”
I waited to hear about the printing press, electricity, or even Franklin’s ambivalence to commit to a monogamous relationship. But none of those things were what Lily had to share. She looked upward, searching for an answer. Perhaps it was unrealistic for me to hope she could give me a verbal book report at three years old. But to my surprise Lily did have something to tell me about Benjamin Franklin after all.
“His wife’s name was Deborah,” she proudly declaimed.
“That’s it?” I asked.
“Yup,” she nodded, “that’s it.”
Hope you all enjoy Women’s History Month this March and that we all learn a thing or two about women that we didn’t know before.
