William: "Why does Small One have to be sold?"
Me: "Because he can't work enough to pay for his food anymore."
William: "Why can't he work?"
Me: "He's getting too old."
William: "Why is he getting old?"
Me: "All living things eventually get old
William: "I'm not old."
Me: "No, right now you're a little boy, but someday you'll get old
William, with a slight hitch in his voice: "And then you'll have to sell me?"
(After working hard to smother laughter, I assured him that we weren't going to sell him, ever.
Violet is for sale? I'll take her! ;) What's another girl?
Violet's not for sale YET, but if she keeps up with this terrible twos business, I may have to reconsider... :PReplyDelete
My daughter (age 6) was asking me if we would sell her so she doesn't have to deal with her brothers anymore. (This was after she learned that my brother and his wife are adopting a little boy from Russia.)ReplyDelete
Isn't that Small One movie so cute? I had never heard of it until we bought a Mickey Mouse video and it had that movie in it.
We have the same Mickey Mouse DVD, Becky! I do remember seeing it as a kid, though, maybe on TV...ReplyDelete
Ha! Too funny.ReplyDelete
Awww!!! I almost cried!! Poor boy! (and poor Violet!!) Hahaha!ReplyDelete
