A conversation with my 4th grader…
Liam: “Dogs are so lucky; they can just go anywhere. The world is their toilet. If I were a wizard, I’d want to be an animagus.”
Me: “You’d want to be able to change into a dog, so you can pee anywhere you want?”
Liam: “Yeah, but also so I could talk to other dogs and find out stuff. Dogs see things, you know. HUZZAH!”
For the record, I take FULL responsibility for turning this kid in to a Grade A, Harry Potter nerd, but we are NOT Renaissance Festival people, so I don’t know WHERE that ‘huzzah’ shit came from. He and I will be having a long, serious talk about what’s acceptable in this house.
