The following short but sweet conversation between my wife J- and my 4-year-old daughter M- speaks volumes about what we face these days with our little "senior in preschool".
J- (obviously quite serious, calling her over a second time for a reprimand): Excuse me, ma'am!
M- (pointedly referring to her ongoing game, to explain her previous lack of response): Do you mean, "Princess"??
J-: No, I do NOT mean "Princess"!
* She'll have put in two and a half years before kindergarten!
You may enjoy my previous M- conversations, J- conversations, and (7YO son) D- conversations.
