They learn while we do

So… my two kids found defunct cell phones I kept for them to play with. They’d been playing around for a while when I overheard the elder child reciting exactly what the younger one is wearing and describing where he had last been seen.

I stop what I’m doing. I listen and, finally, I ask “are you calling the police to help us find your brother?”

The answer was yes.

They are learning while we are doing. Even though I know this, the realization floored me.

I hope I never have to make another one of those calls.
