My Funny Kids

Macy and Austin decided to "sneak" (which really means "steal") some food out of the pantry tonight after Greg told them not to. Dinner was almost ready, and we didn't want it to spoil their dinner. They snuck into the backyard. When Greg realized what they had done, he locked the back door to see if they liked it when we ignored them. They pounded on the door for about 10 minutes, then Greg finally went outside. Macy said in her best pouty voice, "You hurt my feelings, Dad. You need to give my feelings back."

While getting ready for bed, Greg and Austin were having a discussion about "infinity" (one of Austin's favorite subjects). He kept saying something was "infinity plus one" or "infinity plus one hundred." Greg explained, again, that there was no such thing. Infinity was the highest number, there was nothing higher. Austin thought for minute and asked, "Well...what's the number right before infinity?" If anyone knows, please enlighten us so we can answer the questions of our six-year-old! I thought I could at least answer all of his questions until he started taking algebra, but he's much smarter than us already.
