Emilyism

Em: Mom, what's an 'atom'?
Me: It's the building block of life. We'll need to look up the official definition when we get home, but it is a scientific term that describes the core of what everything else in life is made up of. Let's look it up when we get home because that would be something interesting to study when you track off...
Em: Because there's a song that goes: dun nuh nuh nuh, duh nuh nuh nuh, the Addam's Family...
Me: Oh. Right. Of course...that's the last name of a fictitious family that was a television show when mommy was little. They had the mom, Elvira, who I think was a witch, a cousin named IT with long hair to its toes, and a vampire dad or something. It was just goofy. Where did you learn of it?
Em: It was just a Halloween song we heard at school.

Have a good weekend!

  1. The rule of explanations: keep it simple and to the point. I'm horrible at it.

    You did a great job with your explanation...until Emily threw that monkey wrench in there.

    Gotta love it!
