Aiden is like a teenager sometimes. He believes his illiterate little friends and discounts what his mommy says, leading to some bizarre beliefs.
But sometimes it’s a matter of choosing which adult to believe. In these cases, he bases his beliefs on height.
One day he came home and urgently asked me, “Mommy, who is taller, you or Teacher Leo?”
His thinking goes like this: the older you are the taller you get, and the older you are the smarter you are, therefore the taller you are the smarter you are. KC likes this argument because it means he’s smarter than I.
