Outside looking at ants.

Caderyn: Mommy are ants nice?
Me: Yes.
Caderyn: Mommy will ants eat me?
Me: Um, no probably not, but you should leave them alone to do their work. They can bite.
Caderyn: But I'm bigger than them and I can stomp them.
Me: Oh no! That is unkind. We should never step on them purposely. They are just minding their own business.
Caderyn: But they are in my play spot.
Me: That's what happens when you play outside, you have to share with other people and animals.
Caderyn: Bye Crackey you're right!

I have no idea where Caderyn learned that phrase. He has been saying, "What the heck?" or "What the heckey?" but I told him it wasn't okay to say that and to come up with something else like "Fiddlesticks!" (my personal fave). This must have been what he came up with. Not gonna lie, I busted out laughing as soon as he said it.
