Transitive Television Properties

Mommy is stubborn, and she asks the same question over and over that she shouldn’t be asking in the first place.

Mommy:  Do you like Mommy better or Daddy better?

Cookie: I like Daddy better because he lets me watch Dinosaur Train.

Mommy:  But TV makes you stupid.

Cookie:  I like Daddy better because he makes me stupid.

Me: !

Do You Look Like Mom or Dad?

Cookie, your unfiltered honesty has caused Mommy a lot of grief over the years.

Mommy: I thought she looked like both of us, but now I think she looks like me.

Me: I always thought she looks like you.  She has your eyes, your nose, your lips, your cheeks, your hair…

Mommy:  She doesn’t have my forehead.

Me:  Her forehead is much closer to yours than mine.

Mommy: That forehead is your mother’s.

Cookie:  No, I don’t have Mommy’s forehead.  I don’t have lines.

Mommy: !

While Mommy does have one little line, I predict Mommy will use a lot of moisturizer yet again tonight.
