This morning, walking into the store:
Max says "Mommy, I wish the world were made of candy".
Journey chimed in and started singing "yea, all candy!"
Me: "Really? But then we would all melt when it rains (as it has done nearly every day for like three weeks now)."
Max: "No, all the raindrops would be candy too - everything would just be candy!"
It is possible that my kids have had FAR too many sugar-coated Christmas treats this year.
