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.

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...
