A conversation...

KayTar: Look at my markers, BubTar. They're magic!

BubTar: No they aren't, KayTar!

KayTar: Moooom! BubTar said my markers aren't magic!

Me: BubTar, just let her pretend.

BubTar: But they aren't magic! Someone just made them do that so kids will THINK they are magic, but I'm too smart for that.

Me: BubTar, don't be so cynical.

BubTar: What? Is cynical another word for SMART?

Me: (laughter)

Sadly, that is what passes for smart these days. Oh poor, jaded Bub-Tar.

*snort* he sounds just like The Boy!

That's great! You have some pretty smart kids. Cynical or not.

And just what makes plain old "magic markers" so "magic" anyhow?

Ahh, the older child.

I think cynical means too smart for your own good, under such circumstances. ;-)

Awesome!
My 9 YO has a hard time letting JJ just pretend sometimes too. It is hard to let the little one still have the Magic, when the older siblings are just so "smart." :)

So I've only got 2 more years before the magic comes to an end? Sigh...
