They're Kinda Right.

Somehow Quinn has gotten the impression that Alex works at a hospital. (Alex is actually an attorney for the government.) Whenever we pass a large, block-y building, he'll say, "That's Daddy's hospital!"

I'm not sure why.

It turns out that none of my children really know what Alex does (although Sam and Jack are close), as evidenced by the following exchange:

Quinn: "Daddy works at his hospital."

Me: "No. He's a lawyer. Can you say 'lawyer'?" [Try having your kids say "lawyer" just for fun. It's hilarious. Go do it. I'll wait.]

Quinn: "A-yaw-ya. A-yaw-ya." [See?]

Me: "And 'lawyer' means..."

Jack, super enthusiastically: "FIGHT!"

Sam: "No, it means 'make money for the president,' right?"

They're astute little dudes, Sam and Jack are.
