Wait, What?

This is Josh and my conversation coming up the stairs after school.

Me: No, Josh you can't borrow toys from your friend's house.
Josh: When I have kids, I'm going to let them borrow toys.
M: That's fine.
J: I'm going to have two kids. Will I have two kids?
M: That's up to you and your wife.
J: I'm not going to have a wife.
M: How are you going to have kids then?
J: Mom, you are going to have a girl baby in your tummy when Benj gets older.
M: I want to have a girl baby.
J: Yeah, you need a girl baby so then I can have a wife and have kids.
M: Wait, what?

I guess I need to clue this kid in on how that's not okay. I don't even think they do that in West Virginia.

Most of the TV the kids watch is on PBS. Sometimes lame, but mostly educational and no adds for the Better Batter Baseball. Dinosaur Train is on right before we leave to take Josh to school. It's a show about talking dinosaurs that ride on a train through time and space to meet and learn about other dinosaurs. The main family consists of pteranodons and an adopted t-rex that hatched out of the eggs the mom was sitting on.

Okay, so I know you probably don't care about all that but you have to have the background for Josh's comment this morning. I'm putting on Benj's shoes and Josh is watching Dinosaur Train. All of the sudden he says, "Hey, dinosaurs don't wear hats!"

Really? Out of all the things dinosaurs "don't do", like talk, ride on trains, time travel, etc, you point out that they don't wear hats?
