the other day, we were sitting on the couch and I was talking (sarcastically) to the television. can't remember who (or what) was the cause of my agitated state. ava looked up from the book she was reading with a serious look on her face.
"mommy, they can't hear you. they're not real."
pause. I'm looking at her, she's looking at me.
"mommy, it's just the tv. they're not REAL."
and don't you know I switched that television off, walked into the kitchen and had a little laugh.
