Recently, Miss M. wanted to play princesses with me.
Miss M: You be Cinderella and I’ll be Snow White. Let’s have a tea party!
Me: *eying my laundry* Oh, I’d love to, Snow White, but my stepmother and stepsisters have left me all this laundry to fold. They work me so hard. Help me, Snow White!
Miss M: All right. I’ll go kill them.
Me: o.O *jaw drop* *recovering* How about you just put them in jail?
Miss M.: Okay! I’ll chase them to jail. *scampers off*

Oh man! Out of the mouth of babes…

Oh, boy! :blinks: That’s scary.
Yes, the things they say! Sometimes it’s better not to listen in to kids at play, if only to preserve our own illusion of childhood innocence. 😀
