An Actual Conversation: The Law

Way back when Sweet Pea was 4 and dinosaurs still ruled the land, we had the bestest back yard neighbors in the history of ever.  Buttercup, a year older than Sweet Pea lived mere yards away from us.  Pickles was teeny and Buttercup’s sister was a toddler and we all frequently spent the witching hour before dinner outside playing with them.  It was spring-time and the kids were together a lot.  Sweet Pea really loved playing with Buttercup and she was his first real friend.  He was also captivated with this new thing he had recently heard about called sleepovers.  He was trying to make these things somehow mesh in his life.

See, only girls. I rest my case.


Sweet Pea: Mom…  Is it the law…  Is it the law that boys and girls can’t have sleepovers at each others’ houses?

Me: Yes.  Yes it is the law.

The end.
