Becca keeping it real

Becca, at age 5, is a real delight with her questions and observations that keep me on my toes. Here is a recent conversation:

“Mom, are babies born bad?”

“What? No. No, not at all. Babies are good.”

“Are children bad?”

“No, Becca. Children are good. All of them.”

“But are there bad people?”

“Well….yes. Some people are bad.”

“So what happens to the children to make some of them bad people.”


“Well. Sometimes things happen along the way.”

“What kinds of things?”


“Different kinds of things. Not everyone has awesome parents like you do.”

(Well, why not….)
