K.: I like all the fairies. I like Rosetta because she can make flowers open. Can she do that for reals?
Me: Well, she does it in the stories and the movies.
K.: Uh-huh.
Me: If you see something in a story or movie, does that mean it's for reals?
K.: No.

I can't tell you all how happy it makes me to see my kid engaging in critical thinking. I feel like often we parents don't discuss TV and movies with their kids enough -- it's sometimes shocking what they think is real or what they don't understand. Anyway, this conversation with K. came after The Man showed them scenes from John Carpenter's "The Thing" in slow-mo and explained how effects were done. "Okay, now they just replaced Blair with another guy wearing a Blair mask. And the other guy has no arms, so they put some fake arms on him..."
