Scene: Family room. The Boy is playing with his Thomas the Tank Engine track.
Me: C__, what do you want to do today?
The Boy: What, Mom?
Me: What do you want to do? Do you want to go with me to Target?
The Boy(thinking) No, we can go to IKEA.
Me: You want to go to IKEA? We can do that.
The Boy: Yeah. I need a new dresser.
Me: You need a new dresser? Why?
The Boy: Because I’m growing!
Me: (starting to leave the room) Let me talk to Daddy about that first.
The Boy: I need a new dresser because I’m growing big like Daddy!
