So last week I had the kids in the car on our way to pick up Julia to babysit for the night. Since Tricia, our other babysitter (and Julia's sister) drives to our house 4 days a week to sit for the kids, Sofia was a bit confused as to why we needed to pick up Julia. I explained that Julia can't drive because she hasn't gotten a drivers license yet.
So today, we were driving home from a FUN day at the Science Center when a fire department pick-up truck drives past us on the freeway. The conversation went like this.
Sofia: Hey mom, there's a fire truck.
Me: No, Sofia that's the fire department's pick-up truck. It's not the one that puts out fires.
Sofia: Is it going to pick up Julia?
Sofia: Is that fire pick up truck going to pick up Julia?
Me: (laughing!!) No, the truck doesn't pick up people, it's just the name for that type of truck.
