Get Over It

Madeline: "Daddy, Mommy said she has a headache." Dan:  "Well what can you do to help her?"

Madeline:  <pauses to think>  "Well, I already kissed her."

Dan:  "That's very sweet, honey.  What else can you do?"  (Fishing for "be quiet," "let her rest," "leave her alone," etc.)

Madeline:  "Mommy needs to brush it off and say 'I'm tough.'"

C'est la vie.
