Jude: Mom, did you know that Grover is a bear?
Me: Uhh..I thought he was a monster.
Jude: Nope, just a bear.
Maddie: Mom, what is Ernie?
Me: Well, he's a person.
Maddie: I don't think so.
Me: Well, he's kind of a puppet person, so he's not quite human...he's more like, well, Bert.
Maddie: What's Bert?
Me: Uhhhh, I'm not quite sure.
Jude: Mom, Prairie Dawn is a dog, right?
