This morning as I was reading a book and drinking my coffee, Zane asked me if we could "throw Quacker" when I was done (a game we played last night with his stuffed duck). The short conversation went as follows:
Zane: When you're done with that, can we throw Quacker?
Me: I don't know.
Zane: Does "I don't know" mean "maybe"?
Zane: Does "maybe" mean "yes" or "no"?
Me: That, I don't know.
Zane: I hope it means "yes."
I love four year olds! It did remind me of the passage where we need to let our "yay be yay and our nay be nay." I tend not to want to commit to things as schedules change so often that I don't want to let my kids down. But, I guess Zane is one of those who wants a yes or a no. I'll definitely be working on that.
