Let's Be Reasonable

The following conversations occurred within three minutes of each other, over dinner tonight.  First:

(I accidentally drop a slice of apple on the floor.)

Dan: Do I need to throw this out?

Kate: No, I'll eat it.  I mopped yesterday.

Madeline:  You mopped?  Who's coming over?

Sigh.  She's not wrong.   And second:

Madeline: Mom, can I have some more broccoli please?

Kate:  You already have two pieces on your plate that you haven't eaten.

Madeline:  Mom, let's be reasonable, this broccoli is very small.

 Madeline, let's be reasonable.  YOU ARE THREE.
