The other day, Noah and I were playing in the back yard. Two of the kids who live next door came out into their yard and Noah went over to say "hi" while I stayed on the deck. I heard the little brother (probably 3 or 4) ask his sister (probably five) if I was Noah's mom. The girls said, "No, because she's not Chinese." Ha! We thought that was funny.
Kids have such funny ideas about how things are. A long time ago, when I was substitute teaching, a kid asked me how old I was. After I told her, she looked at me and said, "You can't be that old, you're not tall enough." Ha!
