"Michelle, this bra is wicked awesome. But I would like it to be in hot pink. Can you get that for me, please?"
Her: "Michelle, please dont tell Julianna that I love Barney. Julianna doesnt like Barney. But she likes Barbie Diamond Castle and Hannah Montana. Its ok if I like Barbie Diamond Castle and Hannah Montana. It is NOT ok if I like Barney. Don tell her,ok Michelle?"
(I tell her it is ok that she still likes Barney, that she should not be afraid to be who she is.)
HER: "I do. Just dont tell her that, ok?"
Her: Mom, these skates are broken.
ME: They arent broken, its just hard to balance on skates.
Her: Well, then my feet are broken, cause this is not working.
Her: "Michelle, when you was a little girl, did you like Barney?"
ME: When I was a little girl, Barney wasnt born yet.
Her: "Wow, you must be really REALLY old."
My little, BIG girl.
