Lobbying

My 5 year old asked me, "Mom, what does lobby mean?"

"It can mean two different things," I said. "A lobby can be a room by the entrance like a hotel lobby or it can mean trying to get someone to do something. Like with the government."

I realized that my explanation made no sense to him when he said, "So does the government work in the hotel?"

Clear as mud.

Oh, so I'm not the only one who has conversations that are way over my kids' heads? You know... explaining debt consolidation and mortgages and the purpose of nose hair and ummm I'll stop there ;)
