I was sick last night, so after the little boys went to bed, Jeremy took Alex and Maddie to get some ice cream. When they sat down, Alex said to Jeremy in a very serious voice, "Dad, I have a question for you, but I've been waiting to ask you in private."
It's funny that he phrased it like that, but I'm sure Jeremy got a bit nervous regarding what subject matter was going to be brought up if "privacy" was needed for the explanation. Alex has been bugging us lately about wanting another brother or sister and how that comes about, about what "bad things" could possibly be on the internet, and exactly what are all the curse words out there.
So when Jeremy asked him what his question was, he said, "Dad, what are taxes?" Ahh. He threw Dad an easy one. He saves the dicey questions for me, I guess.
And after that explanation, he said (with very funny phrasing again), "I would really like to arrange a time when I could shoot a real gun."
What?! Taxes and firearms? He must be watching CNN secretly or something.
