So, the other night during dinner Matthew says, "I can't wait to go to school tomorrow and play cops and robbers." Here is the conversation that followed.
Mom: Matthew, you play cops and robbers at school?
Matthew: Yeah, we play during our snack outside. I am usually the cop, but I want to be the robber next time.
Mom: Matthew? Do you know what a robber is?
Matthew: Yeah, he's the bad guy.
Mom: But do you know what the word robber means?
Mom: A robber is someone who takes things without paying for them, or takes something from somebody without asking. They are not nice people. The police try and catch them so they don't rob again.
Matthew: Yeah, I want to be the robber next time.
So, consider yourselves warned. If you get a collect call from the Lodi City Jail, and the operator says Matthew is on the line....HANG UP!!!
We apparently need to work on his life aspirations.
