[Editor's Note: Kids view the world differently than we adults do. As parents, we sometimes let them believe things that aren't true (think Santa Claus), sometimes we correct them and sometimes they catch us off guard with what they believe about certain situations.

“Oh. Well, when Noah goes back to his family, can we get Gymnastics Buggies again?”
“Uh, baby…we ARE Noah’s family. He’s not going anywhere.”
“Six months and you still thought Noah was going to go home eventually?"
“Well, he’s going to get married and go live with his family, right?”
“Yes, but probably not until after you do.”
