So today at lunch while eating tortellini (Zeke who is 4 likes his plain and Marit who is 2 likes hers with olive oil) I was chatting with them, asking what they had learned at school (with their mom) today. Zeke told me that he learned about the earth and learned a song to help him remember the continents. Then this was our conversation:
Me: What continent do you live on now?
M: What continent is Maryland on?
Z: Mmmmmm... South America.
M: Close! It's North America. So you've lived on two continents and you're only five. Maybe by the time you're 25 you'll have lived on all 7 continents!
Z: Yea but I don't think I'll live on Antarctica.
Z: Yea, I don't think I will live on Antarctica and I could never live on Asia.
Z: *big eyed* HUNDREDS OF TIGERS!
M: OH!!! That would be scary. Are they in ALL of Asia?
Z: No. Not in towns.
M: What towns?
Z: Where the people live.
M: Got it.
One of the many reasons I love these children.
