Conversations with a 6 Year Old

- Daddy, we drew Mona today...
(taking a second before realizing who Mona is, and deciding to play along)
- Mona who?
- The girl in the picture, she is old
- You mean Mona Lisa?
- Yes, do you know why they painted people?
- No, why?
- Because they didn't have cameras!
- Daddy, do yo know that she was stolen two times, and one time somebody threw a coin in her, and it damaged her on the eye? (has that happened, I need to look up). But they fixed her, and put her behind a big glass. And you can't take pictures or it will ruin her.

(after telling her about Louvre and the paiting itself, I've tried to tell her what I've seen with my own eyes)
- Daddy, can we go to a museum, and to Paris France.

Smart young lady. And I, too, would like to go to Paris. Not happening right now though.
