    Her: OK. But you’re the meanest mommy in the whole world and I’m definitely running away and changing my name when I go to college.
    Me: Fine. Hold my hand and let’s go find .
    Her: OK. After we do that I want to .

    Meanwhile people watching this are shooting me daggers. Whatever. It works for us.
