Kids And Baseball

I’ve been trying to explain baseball to my 8 year old daughter while at a game. We were doing well until I tried explaining stealing a base.
“But why would you want to steal a base?”
“To get closer to home.”
“What’s home?”
“Where they start.”
“Why aren’t we behind where they start?”
“Because your father doesn’t make that much money.”

15 minutes minutes of explanation later, we sit back and watch the game. I think man, I’ve done an amazing job teaching her baseball.
Then she asks:
When’s half time?
