The Difference Between Boys and Girls

A recent drive past the state prison led to a conversation about the criminal justice system. I described prison as where grown ups go if they do something very bad. The agents had hundreds of questions which I answered as honestly and simply as I could.

After a lull in the conversation, Agent 004 said

When I am a grown up I will not do any bad things to go to prison.
Agent 002 responded
When I am in prison I will turn on my space ship and go VROOM and knock the fence down and get out of jail.
And that, my friends, is how a little boy thinks...

Agent 002 and Mr. Intensity would be fast friends...if we lived closer!!!

Ha - so funny. It's so true!! I love having a boy and girl close in age, because you really can see the gender differences.

This is so boy- I love it. Last night Joseph was looking at the sky and said, "Mom, I'm going to miss you when I go to the moon."
My girl said, "When I grow up I'm going to live next door to you in my own house."

I don't doubt either one, really.
