He Makes Me Laugh... When He's Not Making Me Crazy!

Some funny AJ comments:

"Mommy, sometimes when we go down to the basement at school they say XYZ." I couldn't understand what he was saying but it sounded like broken toe.
"No. Not broken toe. But I think they are talking about a toe."
After a solid 5 minutes of trying to help him figure it out I realized that they must be saying Boker Tov. It's Hebrew for good morning. Apparently, he missed that translation about 2 years ago when he probably first heard it!

AJ: Mommy can we go to China?
Me: No. (thinking how nice it would be to go and digging the fact that he wants to experience another culture)
AJ: Why not?
Me: Because it is very expensive. Plus, it takes a long time to get there. Also, I don't think they just let anyone come visit.
AJ: But I really want to go.
Me: Why? (as the light bulb is starting to finally turn on)
AJ: I want to see the factory where they make all my Star Wars figures.
So much for culture.
I had to bite my tongue about possibly seeing kids his own age working in those factories:(
I can only do so much but I did point out some of China's other notable attributes, like the Great Wall, panda bears, etc.
