Kids came to our Tax Appointment (note the offset childcare comment)- tablet and iPad in hand. After we left...

Overheard iPad convo with my almost 6 year old and Siri: "I want to see big boobs."
And my personal favorite: My 9 year old son is a compulsive reader. In a fit of desperation and unbeknownst to us, he started reading a parenting book off of the "grown-up" bookshelf. Today, he told me how to properly execute a time-out and how offended he was by some of the cartoons outlining the trials of parenting.
