We were in the car this evening, coming home from Nathan's basketball game (they won; he didn't play a whole lot because he got in foul trouble early and it just got worse from there) when Jacob expressed a desire to go back to Florida and stay in the rental house. Jeff reminded him that he (Jeff) didn't have any vacation time left, so Jacob would have to go without him.
"But Mommy has to work, too, so she couldn't go with you, either."
"That's OK. Maybe I could find some money laying on the counter." (I only wish I had that kind of change lying around!)
"You know, it's not right to take money that isn't yours."
"We-ell...maybe I could just say that I found it and it looked like it needed some love."
