M: Hey look, my cup was empty before, and now it has water in it. It’s magic!
Me: Hmm. Who do you think might have noticed that your cup was empty and filled it up so that you’d have water when you were thirsty?
M: Um… you?
Me: Maybe. You think that’s in my job description to notice when your cup needs water and refill it?
M: (Laughs and shakes his head) No, Mommy. Your job is to write books.
Yes, well, among other things. But it’s nice to know that even the little people have my back.
