This is a real conversation I had with Olivia (she'll be 3 years old next month) on Wednesday at about 7:15 in the morning:
Olivia: Mom, can I have some gum?
Me: No, it's barely 7am and you haven't even had breakfast yet.
Olivia: Please...I promise I won't swallow it?
Me: I said no and don't ask me again!!
Olivia (with arms folded and a frown): Humph....I'm getting rid of you!!!!
Hey..as far as I'm concerned....a white sandy beach with crystal clear water sounds good to me!! Can she "get rid of me" there???? I'll go willingly!
