Driving home from errands, a little late for lunch…

“My tummy is hungry and tired, Mama.”
– Emily

“Well, I’m going to take you home and put food in your tummy.”
– Mama, trying to head off the whining

“No, Mama! I’M going to put food in my tummy!”
– Emily, a bit outraged

“OK, I’ll put food on your plate.”
– Mama

“That’s better!”
– Emily, sounding very pleased
