Child 2 is playing a video game, it has something to do with planting plants or something, I don't know (who monitors this kind of thing, anyway?). He's all excited and is running into the kitchen every 45 seconds while I'm making dinner to make a report on his progress. Here's how the last one went:
Child 2: Mama Mama! It was SO cool. The plant gave off seeds and the seeds grew into new plants all by themselves! I didn't know plants and seeds could DO that!
Me: Oh, yeah, that's how plants work.
Child 2: How?
Me: UHHHhhhhhh......... (SHIT! Why isn't your father home??!?!???) I'll tell you when I'm done with dinner.
Child 2: OKAY! runs away, all excited to come back and learn about plants
NOW what do I do??
