We need to set him straight!

After we read books, as part of our nightly routine, Spencer and I say a prayer. At the end of our prayer we say what we are thankful for and we ask for special blessings for people when needed. Tonight, during our prayer, I said to bless Dean, Kim's boss, who is struggling with complications following surgery to remove a cancerous tumor. Spencer stopped mid-prayer and said "Kim's Boss?" I said, "Uh-huh" slight pause...then he blurts out "I didn't even know she was married!!!"

I quickly ended the prayer and PROMPTLY explained the difference between boss and spouse. I think a few of my Dad's "jokes" distorted my little guy's view-- Nana is gonna have to lay down the law over there!
