Justin and I were driving the home the other day after dropping Cara off at track practice and this is how part of our conversation went.
Justin: Mom, why does Grandpa Korth have horses?
Me: I think he just likes horses. Why?
Justin: Horses don't give you anything?
Me: What do you mean?
Justin: Well, chickens make you eggs. Some cows give you milk and some you can eat. But, horses give you nothing. They just poop all over.
Me: (laughing) Well, we'll have to tell Grandpa to think about this.
Justin: Okay, you call and tell him.
A while later I called Grandma Korth and told her about this little conversation. She had a good laugh and said that she would tell Grandpa that horses give you nothing and explain.
Sometimes I wonder how his little brain works. Another part of the conversation was about what he should be when he grew up. Justin is considering a job at McDonalds or an artist because he likes to draw mice. I told him that I think he would be good at building things because he likes to build with Legos. He told me that he would think about it some more. I told him that he had a while to think since he is only in Kindergarten.
