I came across this gem of a conversation from when my daughters were 5. It makes me laugh every time, so I thought I’d share it with you.

J: … and then you can put your hair in two braids and be Tigerlily.
M: You’re not the boss of me. I don’t have to be Tigerlily.
J: She has black hair and long hair and you have black hair and long hair.
M: You are not the boss of me. Mommy is the boss of me.
J: And the teacher.
M: Yes. Mommy is the boss of me and the teacher is the boss of me and Daddy is the boss of me, but you are not the boss of me.
J: I’m just saying you can be Tigerlily.
M: Mommy, can you make me two braids to be Tigerlily?
