Mosquitoes and M&M's
On the way home from breakfast today:
"Mommy, mosquitoes and M&M's are candy, right?" Madeline asked. Focused on my driving (i.e. lost in thought), I only half heard her question and didn't respond.
"Mommy, I'm talking to you.....Mommy," she said.
"Yes, Madeline, I'm listening," I replied.
"Mosquitoes and M&M's are candy, right?" she repeated.
"No, Madeline. M&M's are candy but mosquitoes are not candy," I said.
"No, no, no," Madeline said, flapping her hands wildly by her shoulders, like little hummingbird wings. "Not Mosquitoes that fly," she said flustered. "I mean, mosquitoes you eat!"
Kurt and I start laughing. "Oh, you mean SKITTLES!" he said.
"Yeah, 'squitoes and M&M's are candy," she said.
