Daily Cupcake: When Your Kid is as Smart as NPR

In Uncategorized on October 10, 2013 at 3:16 am

The other morning my son asked “what is the affordable care act?” I explained to him that it is a law regarding health insurance. We then discussed how the government has shutdown due people who oppose this law. Point blank my 8 year-old says, “Well that’s weird, if the government shuts down how are they going to figure out how to get rid of the act or make it work?” Insightful, quite logical actually. 

Then I heard the exact same words on NPR tonight. I guess my eight year-old is one step ahead. Americans prefer hemorrhoids, cockroaches, and toe nail fungus over Congress.

As an aside, he also told me the other day that we can’t visit North Korea because they will put us in a prison camp and people in Greece keep money under their bed because they don’t trust the banks. This is what happens when your mom listens to news radio.
