Not necessarily the sum of its parts

Today we took the boys back to the Children's Museum for the "Welcome to Kindergarten" event. And what a pile o' loot we came away with! Clay got a 'Class of 2021' tee-shirt, I picked up a bunch of info about PA's 529 plan, Mr. McFeely from Mr. Roger's Neighborhood was there signing autographs and he graciously let us take so many pictures and Mike got tons of video of Clay talking to him ("Speedy Delivery!") Loads of scholastic books (free!), and other tchotchkes changed hands. After a quick snack, we headed over to the local health system's "nutrition" table where they gave the boys each a toothbrush, and Clay got to spin the "kid food" quiz wheel. He landed on a PB & J sandwich, and his question was: what's the healthiest part of a peanut butter & jelly sandwich?

"The JELLY!" he said so proudly. The woman shook her head and said it was the OTHER ingredient.

"Oooh! The BREAD!" Um, no... the very amused woman told him it was still the OTHER sandwich ingredient.

Clay thought a moment, and then I could tell he'd figured it out. "Oh right... It's the OTHER piece of bread!"
