Two of my co-workers got married this year. In the first wedding, my girls were flower girls. They got new dresses, little gifts from the bride, a lot of attention, and cake. They were thrilled.

Mgazi: So? No grownups.

Me: So, you and your husband will be the only grown-ups there.

Mgazi: I'll bring you some cake.
