*conversation takes place while Molly eats the banana we compromised on when I wanted her to eat cereal for breakfast, and she wanted to eat chips.*
Me: You know who likes cereal, Molly?
Molly: Who likes cereal?
Me: Aunt Erica. Aunt Erica loves cereal.
Molly: Oh, my Erica loves cereal!
Me: Yeah, so don't you wanna be like Aunt Erica and eat cereal?
Molly: No. No, I don't like cereal. *pause* You know who likes bananas?
Me: *knowing where this is going, and the kid is about to defeat me again* Who likes bananas?
Molly: Aunt Erica! My Erica loves bananas.
