Leo: “I need some new pants, Mom. This time, will you get some with lots of pockets so I can steal stuff?”
Me: “Um, ‘Yes’ to the pants but ‘No’ on the stealing. That’s not okay, you know? You shouldn’t take things that belong to someone else.”
Leo: “I know, I know. But if someone drops their candy and I find it, that’s not ‘stealing’ that’s ‘finding’. I just don’t want chocolate or candy to just be laying on the ground and not get eaten. That’s what it’s made for- to get eaten. Like, that’s its job.”
He’s just trying to help the candy fulfill its destiny, y’all.
