Teenage wisdom?

RM and I were telling Moe some funny baby stories about him which Moe found very humorous. It led to this interesting conversation:

Moe: "I heard that babies are born really smart and then they get dumber the older they get."

RM and I didn't respond right away, and instead we had this dumbfound look on our faces, especially since Moe looked really serious.

RM looked intently to Moe's eyes and replied very slowly, "And you're telling this to us because... this is some kind of self-fulfilling prophecy for you?" "Because if it is- it may explain a lot."

Moe shook his head in disbelief and said, "Wow Dad, I can't believe you just said that to me."

RM and I immediately burst out laughing and Moe just looked at us like - WE were the dumb ones.

(Thanks everyone for your supportive comments and emails from my last post. Feeling loads better and I'll be back to blogging on a regular basis and visiting your blogs soon!)
