Last night, B and I had this little exchange:
Mommy, do grownups draw pictures?
Yes, sure grownups draw pictures. They just don’t have as much time to draw as kids do.
Because of work?
Yes. Exactly. But grownups can draw. Aunt Rickey draws pictures, and she’s a grownup, right?
… [he gives me a look indicating he knows what I want him to say, but he thinks I am very, very wrong]
Aunt Rickey is a grownup – RIGHT?
Ummm … [disbelieving expression on his face] yeah, ok.
