Last week we drove past a frat house. There were 4 guys sitting on the roof, drinking beer. Ollie asked why they were on the roof. Without thinking I said, “They are not very smart.” A few days later, on Saturday, Ollie and I were driving home from the grocery store. We drove by another frat house and again, a group of shirtless guys are sitting and also standing on the roof. A few blocks later,Ollie says, “Mommy, I think we just aren’t very smart.” I didn’t connect the other day and start wondering who’s saying this to him. Where's he hearing this? I asked him, "Why do you think we aren't very smart?" He said, “I think we should go on the roof.” 3 year olds are nuts.
