Best Friend

*Scene:  Lily and I are making dinner

Me: Lily, if I were your age, I would want to be your best friend.

Lily: Why?

Me: Because you are so fun and interesting.

Me: Lily, when you get older can we be best friends?

Lily: No Way! 

Me: Why?

Lily: Because you’re my mommy.

Me: What’s the difference between a mommy and a best friend?

Lily: A mommy is just much MORE ( hand flare) than a best friend.
