Delicious Choices

Molly:  *discussing her day of belated birthday fun at school* Well, I had my birthday sucker, so I ate it at lunch, and I didn't really eat what was in my lunch box.

Me:  You didn't eat any of your lunch?

Molly:  Well, I had a bite of one chicken strip.  But mostly I just ate my sucker.  I didn't eat my brownie because I had my sucker, and that would be two delicious things, and that might make me sick.

Daddy's Mistake

Molly: What kind of pizza are you making?

Butch: Pepperoni. 

Molly: I don't like pepperoni!

Butch: Yes, you do. 

Molly: No, I don't. 

Butch: Yes, you do. It's what we get from Gusano's all the time. 

Molly:  No, it's not!

Butch: It is. 

Me: Actually, it's not. 

Butch: What? Oh. Whatever, you can pick the pepperoni off. 

Molly: You were just mistaken.

Me: *changing Charlotte's poopy diaper*

Charlotte: *goes to put a toy near the poop*

Me: No!

Charlotte: Why?

Me: Because if you get poop on that toy, we'll have to throw it away. 

Charlotte: Why?

Me: Because poop can make you sick if you touch it. 

Charlotte: Oh. What about peepee?

Me:  Yes, peepee too. 

Charlotte: What about farts?

Me: Yeah sure. Farts too. 

Charlotte: *as if I'm very foolish* Mommy, farts are invisible!
