Scout's on a roll

Scout - 5

(Lying on the floor in the hallway by the kitchen, while I cooked pancakes, running her fingers across the air vents)

Scout: "Mom, does anything live in these vents?"

Me: "No, just air."

Scout "Phew- air isn't monsters".

(I should add that Rob has a habit of teasing her once in a while when she directs her questions at him. This instance smacks of Rob's doing. There is no doubt in my mind that she asked him a question about those grates some time ago and got a very different answer then what I gave her. She knows enough by now to take what he says with a grain of salt and ask me later. --This doesn't mean that there isn't a corner of her mind that thinks what he says just might be true.)

For any new readers out there "Rob" isn't an older brother. Rob is daddy. Yep. You'd think he liked getting woken up in the middle of the night by a little girl with monster dreams..........
