So, the kids had questions about what kind of holiday yesterday was. They seemed a bit confused that people were throwing around the word "holiday" without also throwing around candy and/or presents.
I didn't want to be too graphic or talk about death and war, especially to the almost-four-year-old, so I said, "Memorial Day is when we remember soldiers who protected our country."
And the almost-four-year-old promptly said, "And they died in the wars?"
Um, yeah. That's right.
