Talking to Maia

Maia: Mummy I have a tummy ache, it feels like I am being stabbed in the stomach by a big monster.

Me: Ask the monster to stop.

Maia: MOTHER! - I am talking about a sensation in my stomach. I am using a figure of speech.

Later in the day.

Maia: I'm planning to have my last halloween candy after supper.

Me: I'm planning to say "no" to that plan. You've had sweets today already.

Maia: MOTHER you must be kidding!! I am very mature for my age. I can decide when sweets are appropriate in my balanced diet.
