“Mommy! My bwuther hit me! Right here (points to head).”
“Oh, sweetie, that’s not good. Let mommy kiss it. Do you need ice?”
“No…I need a lollipop.”
“No, you don’t. Do you know how I know you don’t? It’s 8 in the morning.”
“Yes, I’m do needs a lollipop. Hims hurt me and I needs a lollipop.”
“No, you don’t, seriously. Let me drink my coffee in peace, would you?”
“But mommy, hims hurt my stomach. I needs a lollipop to make me better.”
“How exactly is this going to help your head feel better?”
At this point, she walked away for a few minutes, I think to contemplate how best to get herself the desired treat.
“Mommy, I need one because it’s yummy and yummy makes my head feel better.”
Yes, I was defeated by the logic of a three year old this morning. I’m not proud, but I was able to finish my coffee in peace, so not a total loss.
