  1. “How old is Mommy, Grace?” we asked my niece on my sister’s 35th birthday.

    “Thirty-six!!!” My three year old niece chirpped, grinning from ear to ear.

    “Ain’t she sweet,” my sister said, before telling her daughter that no, Mommy is only thirty-five.

  2. It’s a new puppy: “Ain’t she sweet?” It’s a just born Panda: “Ain’t she sweet?” It’s a newborn human child: “Ain’t she sweet?” Let them grow into their full maturity.

    She sings loudly only in the bathrooms , where, we presume , she is permitted to produce certain other unparliamentary noises too. She never swears or burps.
    “Ain’t She sweet ?”
    By the way, she never voices her opinions , in fact she never voices anything , and demurely marries whosoever their thakur father decides appropriate . She never rants or raves, never falls in love, is a brilliant student and a perfect match for thakur’s rich friend’s way ward son.
    She suffers in silence and smiles sweetly while suffering too.
    “Ain’t she sweet ?”
