On the way to school the other day I overheard Chago telling Saia that his legs were looking so much whiter lately. "Why?" she asked him. "I don't know," he said.

So, of course, I take this as a teaching moment and proceed to delve into the deeper aspects of tanned skin versus untanned skin, melanin, the dangers of UV rays, sunscreen, etc, etc, etc.
We're about a block from school at this point as my little diatribe took up our entire commute when Chago decides to chirp up, "Mom..."

"Yes, babe, what is it?"

"I said 'wider'."
