Conversation in our kitchen after school:

Maddie: Today me and my friends tried to dig to China. We didn’t make it to China, though. We made it to water. Pause. Tomorrow, I think we’ll make it to China.

A few minutes later…

Maddie: But… what if we make it to China, how are we going to get back to Canada?

Me: I don’t know. What do you think you should do?

Maddie: Well, I guess we’ll have to build a REALLY long ladder.

A few minutes later…

Maddie: Once we get there, I think we’ll organize field trips for all the other kids.

Me: So… why China? Why not some other country on the other side of the world, like India or Afghanistan?

Maddie: Duh, Mom. China is COOL!
