Two days ago, the kids and I were walking out of the library through those tall, "unpaid-for item" detectors and Caleb asked what they were for. Being the ever-helpful parent, I explained what they were and how they worked... to my chagrin. Next on my to-do list was grocery shopping. We passed through a set of similar detectors on the way out.
You can guess what happened next, right?
Caleb loudly exclaims:
"OH GOOD!! WE DIDN'T STEAL ANYTHING!!!"
I don't know why I wasn't tackled by security. Maybe the holiday spirit?
