A glimpse into my life as my children’s chauffeur

ADDIE:  Momma

ME:  Yes, Addie?

ADDIE:  When I turn six, will you get me a bra?

ME:  Erm, why?

ADDIE:  Because I need a bra when I’m six.

ME:  Erm, well….see, you don’t really need a bra yet.  You won’t need to wear a bra for a long time.

ADDIE:  Yes, huh!

EMMA:  Addie.   You do not need a bra!

ADDIE:  YES I DO, EMMA!  YOU DON’T KNOW EVERYTHING!

EMMA:  No you won’t!  I’m seven and I don’t need a bra!

ADDIE:  Well Melissa has a bra! 

EMMA:  Melissa does not have a bra!

ADDIE:  YES HUH!  SHE DOES SO HAVE A BRA!  SHE TOLD ME!

EMMA:  Does she wear it?  I don’t think she wears a bra.  Momma, do you think Melissa wears a bra?

ME:  Well I really don’t —

ADDIE:  Melissa told me at lunch she is six and she has a bra!

EMMA:  She probably meant she got a bra for when she needs it.  She doesn’t wear it now.

ADDIE:  Is that true, Momma?

ME:  Umm… 

ADDIE:  SHE DOES! 

EMMA:  ADDIE!  She does not need a bra! 

ADDIE:  You are breaking your promise!

EMMA:  Addie!  I didn’t say I promise!

ADDIE:  Yes huh!  You said you promise and you just broke your promise!

EMMA:  Momma!!  Tell Addie I didn’t break my promise!!

ME:  Sigh.

ADDIE:  You are a poo poo head.

EMMA:  I am not a poo poo head!

ADDIE:  Yes you are a poo poo head!  You’re a stinky poo poo head!

EMMA:  Momma!!

ME:  No one is a poo poo head.

ADDIE:  She is so a poo poo head!

ME:  Addie, apologize to your sister for calling her a poo poo head.

ADDIE:  (mumbles) I’m sorry.

Silence.

ADDIE:  So can I get a bra when I turn six?
