I never thought too much about : :; ; it for the first 1 year because I knew how broken up he was over his wife's passing. I thought it, was nice that my wife could console him. Now, I'm beginning to wonder what's going on.

The wedding will be Aug. 9, in Evangelical United Brethren Church, Marion. Last week our 10-year-old son asked me how come Uncle Bill is visiting Mommy almost every day when he comes home for lunch. I don't know if Uncle Bill is staying on and working a later shift or if he's coming over for lunch as well as breakfast. Anyway, I think they are seeing too much of each other. Shall I tel my wife to cut it out, or should I speak to him?—A.W.H.

Dear Ann: Our little girl is four years old. Ever since she was able to sit up, she's enjoyed examining books. Last year she asked me what the "signs" in the books meant. I told her they were words. Soon she was able to recognize several words when she saw them in other books. When my husband bought her a slate he opened Pandora's box. Now she pesters me all day to "explain more words." She writes on everything and reads aloud constantly. I had to stop serving alphabet soup because she became so intrigued with the letters it took her all night to finish a bowl.

He'll be home in six weeks. I'm afraid if I don't tell him he'll hear from someone else and think I let him down. On the other hand, I hate to be the one to give him this sort of news.
