A disgruntled five year old


Emily: "Mom, can I wear my new tennis shoes outside to play?"

Me: "No, I don't want you to get them dirty in the mud."

Emily: "Then why did we even get them if I can't wear them?!"

Me: "Good point."

---------------------------------

Emily: "Mom, why do you have a picture of my nephew on your phone and not me?"

Me: "Because I like to put photos of him on there sometimes too."

Emily: "Because you love HIM more then you love ME!"

Me: (sigh)

-----------------------------------

Emily: "Mom, I want to wear my flower dress."

Me: "That dress is too small for you to wear anymore."

Emily: "What is this world coming too?"

Me: "Huh?"

-------------------------------------

Emily: "Mom, can I bring my drink in your car?"

Me: "No."

Emily: "But, you bring your coffee in there."

Me: "I'm a big person and big people don't spill."

Emily: "Well, when I'm big, I'm bringing coffee in my car and you can't because you will be a kid!"

Me: "I wish that was how it worked."

I miss these kinds of conversations. They're so much better than "hey, can you drive me to the mall tonight? Just think ... pretty soon, I can drive myself!"
