I made a tiny error today. I was in a hurry and give Wild Thing #2 some buttered bread for lunch. I planned to add other things to her plate but hadn't gotten to it yet.
She complained, of course, so I told her that she should pretend she was in prison. I said haven't you ever heard of how prisoners only get bread and water to eat?
Wild Thing #1 came running into the kitchen, "Really, they only get bread and water?!"
Well, I explained, actually they eat much better than that nowadays. In fact, they probably have better food than we do, and they don't have to fix their meals or clean up.
Wild Thing #1 was very impressed with that.
"But do they have TV?" he asked.
Yes, they have TV.
"Can they watch anything they want? Like, can the kids watch Cartoon Network?"
Kids don't go to prison.
"Not any kids?"
"Oh," he said, much disappointed.
Obviously, we should be nominated for Parents of the Year.
