[In the car today.]
Dexter: Nate, you fly? Nate: No, I'm not a bird. I don't have wings. Dexter: Oh. Nate: Hey, I know! When I grow up I can be a bird! Everyone can be a bird when they grow up. Dexter: Me bird! Mommy bird! Nate: Yeah. When we grow up we can be birds and then we can fly anywhere we want.
[a minute later.]
Nate: Mommy, when am I gonna grow up?
Nate wanted to take a picture of me flying like a bird too.
