“Don’t brush the dog with mommy’s brush” (for those wondering, the answer was, “but he needs pretties”)
“Stop licking the dog, Sue”
“But he licked me.”
“Yes but you licked him first Sue!”
“Caitlyn, I don’t care what the potty says, you have to wash your hands!”
“Caitlyn, why did you peel the crayon?”
“His clothes were itchy, he said.”

“Survive til you Thrive!
