My children are naive

and I like it that way.
Pete can't wrap her head around things sometimes, she can't figure out how people can be so mean to each other. That's typical for 10 year old girls. She wears her heart on her sleeve. She's all about "fair" and "nice". I like it. Re-Pete is learning/repeating "family helps family" and "friends help friends". I like that too. I want my girls to have a spirit of helping others.

But sometimes I get a glimpse into their mindsets. Last night I was watching a show about a Super max prison. One guy was there because he killed his father and ate part of his brains, to which Re-Pete says

"How'd he get them out?"
I guess she can't be a genius all the time.
