Overheard in the car…

January 19, 2011

“Mommy, what do you think I should be when I grow up”, asks Chi.

“Whatever you want to be…”

“Well, do you think I could be President?”

“Sure if that’s what you want to be.”

“What do you have to do to be President?”

“Well, you have to study hard and work hard.”

“… and then we’ll get married and have kids,” interjects Lu.

“But you can’t marry me.”

“Why not?”

“Well brothers and sisters don’t marry.”

“Why not?”

“Well, you’re already in the same family.  You have to find another person to marry so that the family can grow,” explains Daddy.

“But you are mommy’s brother,” insists Lu.

“Um, no we are not.”

Hmmm… it is so hard to explain concepts and abstract ideas to a curious four-year old.   How to explain traffic tickets?
