Charlotte: Aw, why?
Me: Because I'm sick and need to rest so I can get better.
Charlotte: Mommy, I wanna go somewhere.
Me: I'm sorry, but we're not going anywhere today.
Me: Because I'm sick.
Charlotte: I wanna play outside.
Me: Not happening.
Me: How many times do I have to say "I'm sick"?
Charlotte: Ummm . . . a lot.
