B, while painting: "Mom, what color is Tiny, usually?"
Me: "Well, like when you color with crayons, when you're painting, Tiny can be ANY color you want her to be." (We're really working on not being so rigid/uptight with our colors... because, oh! my! goodness! the flip-outs we have over Mommy coloring things "NOT THE RIGHT COLOR!")
B: "I know..... but today I think I want to be precise."
Me, snorting (But, also- SO PROUD of her for using 'to be' in the sentence!): "Bridget, do you even know what 'precise' means?"
B: "It means exactly correct."
Cue my stunned silence. This kids' vocabulary!!! I believe I was just schooled.
