Me: …and so tomorrow after school we are going to go to the airport to pick up Melissa.
Ian: What about now?
Me: You want to the airport now to go get Melissa?
Me: She’s not there yet. She won’t get on the airplane until tomorrow. Then we can go get her.
Ian: Melissa has an airplane? I did not know that.
He really said it that way. “I did not know that.” Maybe I should just let him think that Melissa has her own plane. I don’t know if I am quite up to explaining corporate airlines today.
This parenting thing just keeps getting stranger, doesn’t it?
