Okay, so my 9-year-old daughter loves to bake. Begs me to bake almost daily. (She didn’t get it from me… I am in the kitchen minimally and only out of necessity and obligation so my beloved precious family doesn’t get cranky [only Mom is allowed to get cranky in this house] or worse yet… starve.)
So she’s preparing an apple pie from scratch, crust and all… with no assistance from me (that was the agreement… only if she doesn’t need my help). And she’s doing quite an impressive job preparing her very first apple pie… can’t wait to dig in later this evening. She also happens to have an entrepeneurial spirit I’ve not seen in other kids her age.
So I say to her, “You are an excellent little baker… you need to start a bakery.” She was quiet for a moment, then responded, “Why don’t kids get to do things like that… and why do we have to be a certain age to have a bakery?” I pondered… all I could think of to tell her was, “Big government.”
She responded, “Mama, you can’t blame everything on the Democrats!”
Yes I can.
