While reading a book to Bennett-
Me: (started the book on page 4) Mickey ran to the clubhouse and yelled, "Oh, Toodles!"
Bennett: No, No, Mama. Minnie Book.
Bennett: MINNIE BOOK!
Me: I am reading the Minnie book.
Bennett: No, No, Mama. (She takes the book from me and opens to the first page where Minnie Mouse is reading a book. I am clearly caught at skipping pages. Dang. Those days are over.)
Me: Good job, Bennett. Smart girl.
Bennett: Yup, Mama.
-5 minutes later-
Bennett: I so sad at the rainbows, Mama.
Me: You're so sad at rainbows? Why, baby?
Bennett: Rainbows on fingernails.
Bennett: Uh, huh.
-2 minutes later-
Bennett: Mama, fruit snack on my hand.
Me: Oh, you want me to deliver your fruit snack right to your hand?
Bennett: Yes. Fruit snack in Bennett's hand.
Me: Wow, your majesty. Would you like a foot rub as well?
Bennett: I no like Will.
Me: Yes, you do. That's not nice.
Bennett: I no like him!!!
Me: He's your brother. You do like him.
Bennett: What's this, Mama?
Me: Ummmm..... that's an envelope. I thought we were talking about Will.
Bennett: I no like envelope.
