Well, I let the boys watch Sesame Street this morning while I jumped in the shower. I made it down in time for the "Elmo's World" portion of the show. Elmo asks a baby, who happens to be black, a question and Finn says, "Look, it's a black baby. Just like when we were babies." At this point, I'm wondering if he's just thinking it's a baby and he used to be a baby, or what, so I inquire:
"What do you mean Finn? Do you mean you used to be a baby?"
He answers, "Remember? When me and John were black babies?"
This portion of their childhood seems to have escaped me.
Then I remember that Aunt Katie showed them this trailer when she was visiting this weekend. At the beginning, there are two little siblings who are playing and then have a little fight. I was watching with them and said as a joke, "Look, it's John and Finn!," referencing the little fights they so often have. Apparently they took it quite literally. So I explain to them that they were not actually black babies. Finn then asks, "But did we really play in the sand?"
