Yet another example of my stellar parenting skillz:
"Mom, why don't the goblins come here?"
"Because they are afraid of the dogs."
"And the dogs bark?"
"Yep. When the dogs bark at the goblins they run away."
[dogs start barking like crazy]
"Mom, are the goblins here?"
"No, the dogs scared them away."
"But they came here and the dogs scared them?"
"Yeah, let's think about cakes and the aquarium."
