This is how the conversation went down when I got home from work yesterday…
Nicholas: Hi Mommy!
Me: Hi, Babe! How was your day?
N: Good. Mom, do you know about MS?
Me: MS? The illness?
N: Yes. It makes it very hard for people to walk and is very expensive to try to cure.
Me: Oh. Yes, I’ve heard that. Are you raising money for MS at school?
N: Yes…(starts describing the walk, the money raised…all in a very loud voice)
William to Nicholas: Buddy, quiet down a little, I’m trying to watch the news.
Nicholas to William: Daddy. Is what you’re watching more important than MS?
And now we are raising money for MS research.
