A conversation at our house:
Claude: Pretend you're my mom.
Me: I am your mom.
Claude: (Looking at my like I am a moron.) I know...but 'tend I am a girl and you are my mom.
Me: I can do that, but it's a little funny because you are a girl and I am your mom.
Claude: (Pauses and looks at me without speaking. Sighs.) Just 'tend that you're my mom.
Me: OK. I think I will be good at that.
Claude: (Nods and walks away.)
