Sometimes I Just Don't Know

Today Ben asked me if parachutes are vehicles. I said no, because they don't have wheels. Then he said vehicles don't have to have wheels and I asked him to name a vehicle without wheels to which he replied, "Feet."

Five seconds after that he asked me if rockets have wheels. I said "No," and yielded to his victory. And later--you know, like with all great comebacks--I realized that the Space Shuttle does have wheels. So that's a total burn on Ben!

  2. I still don't think parachutes are vehicles. They're just a way to slow down gravity.

  4. I have a feeling that there are going to be more and more conversations like this as Ben grows up. (So, of course, take your victories when you can. There are totally wheels on the Space Shuttle. . .pshaw!)

  5. What about boats? I think they are vehicles. Am I wrong?
