I guess you had to be there...

I was driving to pick up the babysitter last night with my kids. Somehow the subject of my parents and coffee was brought up. My daughter asked, do "insert Scandinavian last name here" drink coffee?

I said, some do and some don't. Your aunts (my sisters) drink coffee.

She said "oh". Then I said, my parents don't drink coffee.

She asked the inevitable question: "Why not?".

"It's against their religious beliefs." I replied.

My son said "I believe in juice." My daughter perks up "I believe in water". Ah, the wisdom of four year olds.

The logic of 4 year old kids - fantastic.
I believe in soy hot chocolates.

Wisdom! I believe in juice and water too...took me a while to get to it from soda, though, but now I prefer both of these to anything carbonated.
