Excerpts from conversations with my 4-year-old after picking her up from school today: Maya: "Can I use my new pencil to do homework this afternoon?" Jen: "Sure." M: "Can you help me because I don't know what homework is?" J: "Do you want an example of how a knock-knock joke is supposed to work?" M: ... [Read more]
