Gus, are you there? What time is it? Is there a duck with you?


Last night, on our way home from town, the conversation was pretty interesting - at least for a 4-year-old!


Colton - Mama, what time is it?


Me - About 7:00.


Colton - Is the sun still out?


Me - Yep.


Colton - Well, when's it going to be gus, or duck, or whatever you call it?


Me - (you'll think I'm so smart and perceptive) Do you mean dusk?


Colton - Yeah, that's it! You know, the time when the sun is gone, but the stars haven't showed up yet, and it's not actually dark. That's what I meant.


Me - You've still got about a half-hour, buddy.


Colton - Oh, man! Can you remind me when it is - I want to look at it tonight.

Colton wonders about the funniest things. You are so good at capturing their conversations. I love the title for this post, too. Perfect!
