Last night as I was putting Madeline to bed, the following conversation took place.
Madeline: I might be a whale or a dolphin.
Me: Really? When?
Madeline: Maybe when I'm older, say 5 or 6.
Me: Well, honey, you're a little girl, and you'll always be a girl.
Madeline: I might. I hope you don't be disappointed at me.
She's such a hoot!
