Last night, the fam had dinner out. Before the food arrived, the five-year-old was drawing a picture on the back of her menu, when her dad asked a question.
Dad: "Will you draw me a Pegasus?"
FYO: "Yes, but I have to finish my drawing first."
Dad: "Do you even know what a Pegasus is?"
FYO: "It's a mythological creature with wings that looks like a pony."
Dad: " . . . "
Dad then turns to the seventh grader, and they launch into a conversation about federalism and the split of power between the federal and state governments.
What am I doing during all of this?
Making pretty patterns with the sugar and artificial sweetener packets.
