Had a quick heart to heart with Kye a few days ago. He was avoiding going to bed and decided to start a deep conversation. It went a little something like this:
Kye: "Mom, what is more important work or family?"
Me: "Family of course!"
Kye: "I knew you would say that." "What about family or food and water?"
Me: "hmm" in great pondering.......
He interrupts with his own thoughts: "Well, you do need food and water or you die." hmm...."But family is important....." hmm....."You do go to a better place when you die, so I guess family is more important."
Me: "That is true." "Now it is time for bed--we can think more about this tomorrow."
Kye: "Ok, Mom. Love you."
Me: "Love you too, now go to bed!"
Internal thought as I drink my tea: Then again cheesecake is pretty compelling......nah, just kidding!
