Me: "Okay it's time for bed. Daddy wants to take you to bed."

Caterpillar: "No. Mommy!"

KingofHearts: "You never want Daddy to take you to bed; why can't I take you to bed?"

Caterpillar: "Mommy!"

KoH: "Why is Mommy better than Daddy?"

Me: "She's not. It's just that you wanted to take her to bed.  If I wanted to take her to bed, she'd want Daddy."

KoH:  "Ah yes. Caterpillar, Caterpillar quite contrary, how does your garden grow?"

Caterpillar:  "It doesn't. I DON'T HAVE A GARDEN!!"


Sometimes it's just too easy.
