Flipping through the channels the other night with Julianna (10) and Isabella (8), my thumb stops on one of those VH1 “Where Are they Now” documentaries.
J: Daddy, who are they?
Me: Uh, I think they’re a Boy Band from the ’90s. I’m guessing New Kids on the Block, since I don’t see Justin Timberlake.
Iz: What’s a Boy Band?
Me: A group of boys who sing together. They used to be like One Direction.
Then, and I kid you not, both girls simultaneously, in stereo ask:
Girls: So they were bad, too. Right?
I’ve never been more proud.
(And you thought I didn’t know how to raise kids…)
