Now I know that Tina the three-year-old is rapidly emerging as the star of the Funny Thing of Today. Usually, if several funny things happen in one day then I try to blog about the non-Tina story. But today’s Tina incident tickled me so much that I would have to rank it number 1 regardless. The following conversation took place on the way to Bernadette’s “Little Women” club:
Tina: Where are we going?
Jacinta: Oh, we’re just going to drop Bernadette off.
Tina [after a thoughtful pause]: I don’t want to be dropped off. I don’t like being dropped off.
Jacinta: We’re not going to drop you off, just Bernadette.
Tina: I don’t want to be dropped off. I don’t like being dropped off. [Pause to process.] Bernadette, why are you being dropped off?
Bernadette: Oh, it’s OK, Tina, big girls like being dropped off.
Tina [pause, process, conclude]: I’m too tiny to be dropped off!
