I'm so confused!

This morning I went to a memorial for a dear friend/former neighbor of mine (Ruben Duarte) who passed away Christmas morning. While I have been to several memorials over the past few years, my girls have never been to one, so they don't know what goes on at such events. As I was leaving the house, Amber said, "Bye mommy. I hope you have a good time at the memorial." I informed her that I probably would not have a good time and told her that memorials are sad occasions. She amended her farewell and said, "Okay, well I hope you have a sad time at the memorial." I then told her that was not a proper thing to say, either. In frustration she blurted out, "Well, I just don't know what to say!" Children are so precious.
