Gabe: Mom, does everyone have a home?
Me: Everyone should have a home to protect them from the outside, but no, not everyone has a home.
Gabe: Especially the Africans, huh mom?
Me (Incredulous and wondering why he would even think this way, we have never EVER said anything remotely racist): No Gabe-- anyone can be homeless. It doesn't matter if you are black or white or any other race.
Gabe: No mom, I meant in Africa because of the lions and elephants.
Me (sheepishly): Oh. Yeah, I guess it is pretty important to have protection when you live in Africa.
And a few days ago:
Gabe: Mom, I don't want to watch Yo Gabba Gabba.
Me: Then don't watch it.
Gabe (very distraught): But then what am I going to do if I don't want to play?
Me: You could work... (??!!)
Yep, I'm blessed with the only kids in the history of time that don't like to "play." I blame it all on technology.
