On our way home after school today, we saw a neighbor boy halfway up a really tall tree. Here is the conversation that followed:
Me: Climbing a tree is a lot of work.
Emily (9): How do you know, mom?
Me: I climbed trees when I was little!
Emily: Oh yeah…..that’s because you’re old and there was nothing else to do since you didn’t have electricity!
Me: Uh, yes we did have electricity…silly!
Emily: Oh, that’s right it was Dad that didn’t have electricity.
