Each evening when it's time for me to go into Andrew's room and do the tuck-in, hugs and kisses, he greets me with some topic for the day. It's usually related to something we've done or seen that day and it's also, most definitely, a stall tactic.
Tonight's conversation went like this:
Andrew: Is it an honor to be in a band?
Me: I'm not sure I understand your question.
Andrew: You know, if you play an instrument in a type of band, is it an honor?
Me: I suppose that if you're asked to be in a band then yes, it's an honor.
Andrew: But why?
Me: Well, you would generally be asked to be in a band because you're a good musician and you practice hard.
Andrew: I don't think I would like to be in a band, because I wouldn't like that other part.
Me: What other part?
Andrew: All the paperwork.
Me: I don't think there's a lot of paperwork involved in being in a band.
Andrew: Oh, good. Then I will do it.
What a relief that must have been to him!
