Conversation between Madelyn and Strawberry Shortcake after I told her she (Strawberry Shortcake) could ride in the car but not go in to story time.
"Momma says you can't go in, so you'll sit in the car and not go to story time. Ok?"
"But you want to go to story time? No, you will stay in the car because you will have friends in there."
"It will be OK, you won't cry. You don't need to go in because you're not real."
"No, you're not."
I almost spit out my water hearing this very real one sided argument with a strawberry scented doll, who currently has no less than 5 bandaids on her arms. I'm a little scared to ask what kind of argument caused those.
