I am an educated person. I know that children are a product of their environment. I understand that the things we teach them now will attach to them and form a foundation, solid or not, for them to continue to learn and grow from. My dh and I finally cleaned the kitchen today and washed some dishes from our kind and generous neighbors who have been singlehandedly provided my family with nourishment for well over a month now. Anyway, my dd saw the clean dishes on the countertop when she came in from playing and announced, matter of factly, "It's supper time, the pans are here." Sigh, I'm too tired to explain it to her.
