Molly: *Seeing an ad poster for Build-A-Bear.* I love bears. I love Build-A-Bears.

Me: What? Molly, how do even know what Build-A-Bear is?

Molly: Build-A-Bears are cuddly. They are lovely, and I want to snuggle them.

Mommy Nikki Owens

Molly:  *Incessant whining about some tiny Barbie piece she couldn't find and wanted us to magically produce for her.*

Me:  Molly, we don't know where it is.  You can keep looking for it, or you can get over it and play without it. Just drop it with the whining.

Molly:  *More whining.*

Me:  Molly Grace.  *Stern look.*

Molly:  Mommy Nikki Owens.  *Stern look.*

Me:  *Fit of laughter, killing all attempts to parent effectively.*

Not a car

Molly: Can you just carry my Barbies?
Me: We can put them in your bag with these other things.
Molly: No, you can just carry them.
Me: But your Barbies want to ride in your bag.
Molly: *holding up the bag* This is not a car, Mom.
