Kids Say the Darnedest Things! Friday
Check out some great stories on a blogger friends website by clicking the words above. This is our Friday contribution:
"Did dad pay the health care bill last night?" Pickle, our serious 9 year old son, asked Monday morning when dad wasn't listening.
I stopped what I was doing to try to understand his question better. I knew that the "health care bill" known as Obama-Care passed on Sunday afternoon but was a little surprised at the tone of his question.
"What are you worried about, Hon?" I asked as I turned to him. The poor child looked scared to death.
"Dad was really upset last night about some 'health care bill'. He said it was going to cost a fortune and ruin everything. I just wondered if he had to pay it last night, or do we not have enough money for it? Mom what will happen, can we afford to pay it?"
Needless to say one of our lessons that day included watching "I'm Just a Bill!" from School House Rock to try to explain the difference between a bill - meant to become a law, and bill - as in money owed.
