Several unrelated conversations, compliments of C, who else?
Setting: In the car, driving past a used car lot.
C: MOM! LOOK! A PINK CAR!!! I didn’t know they made PINK! CARS!
Me: Well, they don’t make many of them.
C: Mommy, I want a pink car! Can we have a pink car?"
C: It’s not FAIR that they can have a pink car and we can’t.
Me: Well, we can’t have everything we want.
Setting: Our family room, one afternoon.
C: Where’s Daddy?
Me: He’s out getting a new TV.
C: YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is it PINK!?
Setting: In the car, driving home from the mall.
C: I want a pink house.
Me: Oh, really.
C: Mom, do they make pink houses?
Me: Not too many.
C: When our house gets old, can we go to a pink one?
Me: When you’re a grown-up woman, you can paint your house any color you want, as long as you can convince your husband to live in a pink house. But good luck with that.
