Bedtime always brings out the 'thinker' in Keely. Most questions are directed to the all knowing Mommy, but tonight was special....it went a little something like this:
Keely: "Daddy, can I ask you any question I want?"
Me: "Sure Honey." (thinking it would be the usual 'can I have ice cream for breakfast?' type of question)
Keely: "Daddy, can I really ask you anything I want?"
Me: "AbsoTutely!" (oh no, she asked for a second confirmation....this can't be good)
Keely: "Daddy, when I eat food what does my body do to make it turn the color of pee pee and poo poo?"
Me: ....silence....(I have no clue....why does it turn colors? that's interesting...hmmm....I should google that in a few minutes...ah, there's my answer)
Me: "Well jelly bean that's a really smart question. It has to do with digestion and when you get a little bit older I'll teach you googling."
Keely: "Googlin' sounds fun. Can we do it tomorrow? I'll be older tomorrow."
Me: "How about we blow bubbles outside tomorrow?"
Me: "Close your eyes, go to sleep" (....crisis averted...mental note: google estimated cost for med school in 2027)
