Conversation word for word between me and LM (age 4):

LM: “Mom, can we have another pet?”

Mom: *we already have a dog that I have to take care of* ”What kind of pet, sweetie?”

LM: “Like a hamster, or a horse.”

Mom: *that’s not so bad, if the hamster was really cute, and we can see Papa’s horses…*

LM: “Or a giraffe. I really want a giraffe, Mom. Please?”

Mom: *dies*
