I had to bring some papers to our accountant today, & I was trying to get the kids moving.
Me: “Come on, we need to go see the tax man!”
Asher: “We shouldn’t go see him, he’s just going to take our money!”
Me: “Well, we have to give it to the government anyway, & the tax man is the guy who makes sure we give the right amount.”
Asher: “But he never gives US any money back!”
Me: “Yes, he does. Sometimes we pay too much & then he gives us some back.”
Asher: “What is the government anyway?”
Me: “It’s a group of people who make the rules, & then make sure people are following the rules.”
Chancery: “I wish the tax man could babysit us sometime.”
Asher: “He can’t babysit us! He’s a MAN!”
…next up, a lesson in gender roles???
