Heading out, we drove past the Primary School we always assumed MC would go to ( it's on our street, and only 2 blocks away .. however we are not in 'the Zone' ... weird )
Me: "So, we're not going to go to that school now - we're going to go to the other school we visited the other day*. With the chickens?"
( Pause to watch expression in the rear-view mirror. Note knitted eyebrows )
Me: "is that okay?"
MC: "And when I get bigger. I will eat one"
* I like the school we're zoned for better anyway, as it turns out. It has chickens, vege patches, wetlands, their own radio station etc etc. Talk about jealous ( me & AB ! )
