Why Are You Going to Jail?

Last night at dinner my husband announced that today he was going to have to visit a jail for his work. The immediate response from the children was, "Why are you going to jail?!? What did you do?"

Despite reassurances that he was in fact merely going to be a visitor at the facility, the four year old asked this morning if he was going to have "those chain thingies put on his arms and legs." Again, we tried to make the kids understand that they don't usually shackle the visitors to the local jail.

When I talked to my husband this afternoon, the two year old asked, "Is Daddy out of jail now?" This will be fun to explain to all our friends.
