Hey Look! A Gray Hair!

Jessica (6 years old): Is pot illegal?

Me (in my head): DOH!

Me: Yes. It's illegal.

Jessica: What is pot?

Me: It is a plant that people dry up and smoke like a cigarette.

Jessica: Is it sometimes called weed?

Me (in my head): Wha the fuuuu???

Me: Yeah.

Jessica: Is it a poison weed?

Me: Yes. It's poison.

Jessica: Does Nana have any of the poison weed?

Me (in my head): Whaaa? LMAO.

Me: Uh, you know. I don't know.

Jessica: Why aren't cigarettes illegal?

Me: Because tobacco isn't illegal and too many people make too much money off of it.

Me (again): Where are you getting these questions from?

Me (in my head): And why am I getting the munchies?


I turns out she has seen commercials about "It's never to early to talk to your child about drugs". I will remain calm and openminded about questions that pop up.


Jacob (5 years old): What does illegal mean?

Me: It means if you do something that is against the law then you go to jail.

Me (in my head): Why not just cut to the chase with the kid.

Jacob: I want Brendon to do something illegal so he goes to jail. And then he'll have to work in a restaurant.

Brendon (8 years old) (Laughs): That would be so cool to work in a restaurant!

Me: What!? No it wouldn't!

  • Ha ha!! How did he associate working in a restaurant with prison ??? LMAO!

    I haven't been asked what weed is yet - but I have been asked if I've smoked cigarettes before *sigh*. Can't wait until I get asked if I've tried pot .... *which I haven't ... ever ... really ... honest .... ahem ...*

  • Well I just learned one thing - trying to read and type the word verification requirement to post a reply is very difficult after having smoked weed.

    Just kidding...boy kids are hilarious - I can totally see the two sides of what you said outside versus what you were thinking inside ('what the fuuuuuuu') LOL

    "Does Nana have any of the poison weed?"

    I don't know why, but that cracks me up.
