Well, That's True Enough I Suppose . . .

Today, as we were in the check out line at the craft store, the Boy and I had this little dialogue:

Boy: Mommy, you know how there is a really smart lady on Bones?
Me: Yes, but how do you know that?
Boy: You told me.
Me: Oh, yes. And?
Boy: Well, I bet people would say that she's born to do the work that she does.
Me: Because she loves it and is good at it?
Boy: Yes.


Then, about 20 minutes later in the car:

Me: So, Buddy, at this point do you have any idea what you were "born to do"?
Boy: Reproduce.

We were in the car, and I said, "Did you say *reproduce*? And he said, "Yeah. That's what we were all born to do."

Not sure how all of this segued from the Bones conversation. Still, true enough!
