"Why is Lithany in time-out, mommy?"

"Do you need to know that?"

"No! YOU know!"

"Yes, I know… but do you NEED to know?"

"NO! You tell me! I am NOT gonna THINK!"

Okay, besides the confusion over the fact that "Do you need to know?" is not the same as "You already know.", and the evidence that I perhaps ask my son to answer his own questions a little too often… the bottom line just slays me.

"No! You tell me! I am NOT gonna think!"

For some strange reason, I love that phrase. It’s so terribly honest.
