Conversations at Our House: Jailbird version


Driving with a child who is learning how numbers work in the real world is so much fun!

NICHOLAS: The speed limit is 25 miles per hour.

ME: Uh huh.

NICHOLAS: That dial says you are going 35 miles per hour.

ME: Uh huh.

NICHOLAS: 35 is a bigger number than 25. It’s 10 bigger.

ME (slowing down): Uh huh.

NICHOLAS: MOM! You were Breaking The Law.

ME: Uh huh.

NICHOLAS: But what will happen if you get arrested? If you go to jail, the babies will starve.

ME: I’m not going to jail. The police wouldn’t put me in jail, they would just give me a ticket. But I’m not going to even get a ticket because I am now going under the speed limit. It’s OK.

NICHOLAS: Who would watch us if you went to jail?

ME: I’m not going to–

NICHOLAS: Who would watch us? Where would we go?!?

ME: You could go to Mrs. B’s.

NICHOLAS: Yay! We could play with her Playstation.

ME: *sighs*
