Me: Tru, is mommy cool?
Tru: Of course not.
Me: What? Why?
Tru: Because you’re mommy and mommy’s not s’posed to be cool.
Me: Says who? Mommies can be cool too right?
Tru: No, mommies cannot be cool.
Me: Oh well, I guess cool is overrated anyway.
Tru: Sometimes cool is good and sometimes cool is not good. But mommy is always good.
Me: Wow, how are you not even 4 years old? That is actually the sweetest thing I’ve heard all week.
Me: Ok how about daddy? Is daddy cool?
Tru: Yes, daddy is cool.
Me: So daddy is sometimes good and sometimes not good?
Tru: Daddy is super cool and super good.
Me: And you are super biased. I’m giving you and your super cool daddy bread and water for dinner tonight.
