Just recalled something my 4 year old daughter said to me while I was preparing to go to work one morning.
M3: Mom, you’re making me late….
Since I was busy dressing up, I ignored her. I knew she was in a hurry to get to school.
After a while, she went up to me again.
M3 : ” Mom, you’re always so busy.”
Me : “Well, when you grow up dear, you’ll be busy too.”
M3: looked at me with horror saying: ” You mean when I grow up I ‘ ll be busy making other kids late too?!”
Me: Ah… (thinking, this is sooo awkward).
