Harrison: "What's what?"
Me: silently giggling - I mean, 'What's what?'! That is not a 4 year old phrase!
Caden: "Those. Up there. Those."
Harrison: "Oh. That. Those are wires. And if you get a REALLY tall ladder you can climb up and touch those wires. But (pause) then you die. Do you want to die, Caden?"
Caden: "Oh. Ummmmm. No."
Harrison: "Well, you could wear special gloves. I mean there are guys that touch those wires all the time but they wear special gloves. I'm not so sure why they touch the wires. MOM!!!"
Harrison: "You know those wires up in the sky? Why do guys touch them? I mean, why?"
Me: "Sometimes they need fixed or tightened so they don't fall down."
Harrison: "Oh. See Caden? Do you have any more questions?"
Caden: "Oh. No. Thank you."
Bennett: "PLANE!!!!!" (pointing up in the air)
This is about the exact conversation that was had in the van this morning on the way home from the library. I hope that Caden's parents appreciate the education that he gets at my house. It doesn't get any better than 'Do you want to die, Caden?' I mean, really. I love these kids!
