A serious conversation with a 6-yr-old

Today at lunch my 6-yr-old asked, very seriously, "Mom, what does troll snot look like?" After thinking carefully about this I replied that I thought 'it looked like his snot, only bigger and slimier'.

He replied, "That sounds right. Except I think the snot is the same color as the troll. So if it's a blue troll he has blue snot." He happily ate his sandwich and went on with his day, having solved one of the world's longest unanswered and most important questions.

I love raising boys.
