Good Mama

Just got this from the wife:

WIFE: You do have to wear your shoes outside because they will protect your feet from the elements.
LAD: The elements are: Fire, water, earth, lightning, and ice.

…and then:

LASS: (2-year-old, to Mother) Are you trying to be a good Mama?

WIFE: Yes I am.

LASS: You spanked Bruh-yer’s butt!

WIFE: Yes, if I hadn’t I wouldn’t have been a good Mother. Are you going to be a good Mama when you grow up?


WIFE: …a good nun?


WIFE: What are you going to be then?

LASS: Ninja.
