Background info: Ian is 7, Kaiden is 6, liam is 4, and nana is…never mind how old (as dirt) I am!
so we are on our way home from a movie and Liam asks:
“nana? Where do we live?”
i reply “we live near Trent”
liam: “no, we live in canada”
ian and Kaiden: “we do not live in CANADA!”
liam: “yes-HUH! I know because of the maple syrup we eat on pancakes and waffles”
ian and Kaiden snicker and snort. Ian: “Liam do you live in china?
kaiden: “do you live in America”
ian: ” well look at that American flag!”
kaiden: ” that means you live in America not Canada”
ian: UNITED STATES of America! We are a m e r i c a n s!”
It’s quiet for a minute and then Liam says just loud enough for the boys to hear:
“I live in French”
And groans erupt from the back seat along with much head slapping.
