*Scene: Lily and I are making dinner
Me: Lily, if I were your age, I would want to be your best friend.
Me: Because you are so fun and interesting.
Me: Lily, when you get older can we be best friends?
Lily: No Way!
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.
