Last night Alex and I had an interesting phone conversation as I laid with him before bed. The conversation went as follows:
Alex: Mom, will you stay with me when Daddy dies?
Me: Yes I will but Daddy isn't going to die for a long time.
Alex: I don't want to die.
Me: You aren't going to die for a long time either. Humans live for a long time. Animals don't live as long.
Alex: We don't have animals.
Me: Yes we do. What is Montana?
Alex: A dog.
Me: A dog is an animal.
Alex: No a dog is a dog.
Me: What about the cats?
Alex: Cats are cats.
Me: What about the geckos?
Alex: Geckos are lizards.
Enough said. We don't have animals.
