Conversation at the breakfast table:
Me (in an effort to encourage appreciation & gratitude): You know, when I was a little girl, we didn't have cell phones or Wii games and we couldn't pause live tv.
Incredulous child: Did you have a computer? What about a GPS?
Know-it-all child: No, silly! They didn't even have paper back then.
Me: Actually paper was invented when I was in second grade, I was so happy I didn't have to scratch my homework on a rock anymore.
Incredulous child: Did they have bricks?
Impatient me: Umm...yes.
Innocent Child (quickly losing "favorite" status): What about the stuff BETWEEN bricks? What about soil?
This is the problem with children. Even if you're NOT older than soil, they make you feel like you are...
