Do you think¬† Sarah got tired of hearing this? After witnessing all the cliche` remarks received during my (young) wife’s pregnancies with our boys, I’m almost sure she did. Sure there was shared laughter at first, but it’s taboo enough to mention a woman’s age any other time in her adult life,¬† it seems inevitable that she would eventually get fed up with people pointing it out at this stage. And besides, her reference to Abraham’s advanced years (100) is a reasonable deflection.

Still, it is rather miraculous…
