Kids are Cute



Conversation with Lillabeth, my 5 year old, this morning at breakfast:

Lilly: Daddy, why do you have to go to work?
Me: Well… where does the bagel you’re eating come from?
Lilly: … the grocery store
Me: And how do we get it?
Lilly: We buy it!
Me: With what?
Lilly: Money…
Me: And where does that money come from?
Lilly: … the bank.
Me: Actually, I do work for the library, and in return, they give me money.
Lilly [eyes going wide at this point]: Ooohhh. So that’s why you and mommy have SO MUCH MONEY!

Someday I’ll need to fill her in on the whole job thing in a little more detail…

    Very cute. :) At 5, every little girl thinks her daddy is superman. And in a perfect world, librarians would make oodles of money. You should let her live in that perfect happy world as long as she can (I sure wish I was still there!). ;)
