Yesterday Sacha was watching Dora the Explorer. Dora always end the show by posing summary questions to her viewing audience. As dull as I find the little Latina automaton, it is cute when my kids have a conversation with her.
"What's your name?" Dora asked.
"Sacha!" he replied. So far, so good.
"How old are you?"
Sacha responded, "Seven."
And...the buzzer sounded, because the correct answer would be three; it's Gabriel, who turned seven this week.
MY SON WAS LYING TO IMPRESS AN IMAGINARY GIRL.
I wasn't sure if I should be proud of how quickly he thought on his feet, or alarmed by his duplicity.
One thing is for certain, though: he is SO ready for online dating.
