As we pulled into the garage the other night, I asked my 8yos Isaac if he would please lock the back door - from the garage to the back yard. He said "sure, Momma". As he was walking back from his task, he looked at me questioningly and asked, "Momma, why do you want to make sure the back door is locked?"
Before I had a chance to formulate an answer that didn't involve anything too scary for his imaginative 8yo brain he pipes up, "OH! I know why!"
