Rose #2: "If you eat something off the ground, will you die? If you eat a chicken bone, will you die? If you eat poison will you die? I don't ever want to ___________ because I might die." I don't know where Rose #2 picked up this recent fear of dying, but she is obsessed. I try to be honest but put things in context - for example, by saying that if you eat something poison, you will probably only get sick, but that's why you should only eat food that a grownup that you know gives to you. Argh.
By the way, we (by "we" I mean "I") almost had to have the birds and the bees discussion with Rose #2. She asked me twice how mommies get pregnant with babies, and I stalled for time. I fully intended to answer the question when I was a bit more prepared but then...she forgot! (I know that if I was a good Unitarian parent I would voluntarily bring it up again but I just don't think I can handle that right now. Lesson number one of being a lawyer, and apparently a parent concerned with sex education: Answer the question you are being asked.)
Rose #1: "I am going to trade Boba Fett at school tomorrow for two Star Wars legos guys."
I don't have anything to add to that last one. Other than perhaps to say that I can't understand why Star Wars is still soooooo popular.
