Overtired, Irrational Children Say the Darndest Things

**This is from last fall. I don't know why I didn't hit 'publish.' But I did today...

Lilly: "Mom, I don't know how to tell you this, but I don't think our family is a safe place."

Me: BLATANT laughing and snorting. 

"Lilly, I'm sorry that I'm giggling, but I can't even pretend to take that comment seriously when there aren't two people in this world that love you more than your daddy and me.

Why do you feel it's not safe?"

Lilly: "Because I don't like how you repeat things. I'm one of those people who doesn't want you to say something twice. 

Unless I didn't hear you the first time."

Me: "Oh, did that happen tonight?"

Lilly: "Yes. Dad, said, 'Are you sure? Are you sure?' when he thought I had the answer wrong on my math homework."

Me: "Oh. Was it wrong?"

Lilly: "Yes. 

But I don't like all the repeating."

The conversation then spiraled into insanity that made me want to gouge out my eyes with plastic sporks, but I won't record it all.

Just know: we are NOT safe:)
