Werewolves and force fields

So, Thursday morning, we rounded the corner to the school, and there in the sky in front of us was the huge, full moon. Aimee and Betty were all "ooooo! pretty!" Then this conversation followed:

Betty: "What about werewolves! I was SO afraid of werewolves last night when I was sleeping!" (and I'm thinking...really? and you didn't know about the full moon until *just* now? lol)
Me: Oh, well, we have an anti-werewolf spell on our house so they can't get in.
Aimee: "There's no such thing as spells, mom" (Betty made some kind of agreement to this)
Me: So, Werewolves are real, but spells aren't?
Aimee and Betty: right.
Aimee: it like a force field?
Me:....yes, it's like a force field. It keeps out vampires too. Really, it keeps out all monsters.
Aimee: What about Butterflies?!!
Me: What *about* butterflies?
Aimee: what if a butterfly comes in during the day, and turns into a monster at night?
Me: Well, basically, if anything turns into a monster, the force field will grab it, and throw it out.
Aimee: is there a button?
Me: button?
Aimee: to turn it off?
Me: yes, but I'm not going to tell you where it is, cause I don't want you to turn it off.
Aimee: But what about the monsters? what if they turn it off?
Me: they can't get inside to get to the button.
Aimee: Oh, the button is on the inside.

Then we were at the school and they ran inside. So, Werewolves, and butterflies that turn into monsters at night, are real...and so are force fields. But spells, do not exist. Just in case anyone was wondering.
