Trying to explain to Colin why his favorite superheroes wear their underwear on the outside of their pants. "They just do," and "No, you can't wear them to school like that" are the best I can do before coffee.
Picture day at school & Colin is the only boy there without slicked back hair & a button-down shirt. I was just happy he was willing to get dressed at all and then decided on a Superman t-shirt today because it represents what he actually looks like these days.
At the lion exhibit at the zoo, Colin pointed to the female. "Wassat?" "That's a girl lion." I said. "The boys have a lot of hair on their heads. Girl lions don't have that hair." "Oh," said Colin. "I finked it was a tiger."
