To be 11 again :)

Last week I had this conversation with my brother Josh:

Me: Did you swim a lot when you were on the cruise?
Josh: Not really.
Me: When I went on a cruise, we didn't swim at all.
Josh: You've been on a cruise?!
Me: Yeah, right after I graduated from high school. But I'd like to go on another one, maybe next year.
Josh: Who's going to pay for you to go on a cruise?
Me: Well, I will.
Josh: You can afford a cruise?!
Me: Well, I would have to be the one to pay for it, unless my imaginary husband wants to pay.
Josh: Well, that's not gonna happen.

Doesn't he boost my self-esteem well? :) Then, today we had this conversation after he found out I'm going to Florida next week:

Josh: Are you driving to Florida all by yourself?
Me: Actually I'm flying.
Josh: You can afford to fly?!
Me: Yes, I can. What's with you not thinking I can afford anything?
Josh: Well, you live in an apartment.
Me: Yes.
Josh: You don't even live in a house. You can't afford one if you live in an apartment.
Me: Actually, I don't own a house because I don't want the responsibility of a house, but I could afford one if I wanted to.

I don't know what his obsession is with me not being able to afford things, but the logic that it all boiled down to me living in an apartment cracked me up!

That's interesting. :) Still being relatively new to parenthood, it is fascinating to see how children's thoughts evolve over time. John is currently obsessed with the idea that we can't swim the the ocean next week because there will be "too many whales" in the way. Although this morning he said that we could go swimming once "the whales get out of the water". :)
