I Might Not Be A Mature Adult

Cookie:  Are we there yet?

Me: Not yet.

Cookie: Are we there yet?

Me: No.

Cookie: Are we there yet?

Me:  Yep.  We’re here.  We came to see that tree over there.  Isn’t it beautiful?  Ok.  Time to go home.

Cookie:  No, not the tree.  We’re going to the museum to see the whale.  We’re not there yet.

Me:  Oh.

Me:  Are we there yet?

Cookie: No.

Me:  Are we there yet?

Cookie:  Not yet.

Me:  Are we there yet?

Cookie:  No.

Me:  Are we there yet?

Cookie: NO!

Mommy: Guys!

Me: She started it.

In my defense, Cookie, you rarely repeat the “are we there yet” mantra on trips.  I attribute your excellent behavior to my, ummm…, reflective example of how annoying this sequence of questions can be.  Yep.  That’s my story.
