J--almost 9: does soap have wine alcohol in it?
Me: no, it has rubbing alcohol ...sometimes
J: is it the same that you can get drunk from?

J: so you could die from it?
Me: I suppose.
J: Mom, remember when you use to put soap in our mouths.
Me: ummmmm...Jeremy, you know I wasn't trying to kill you.
