The following is a transcript of an overheard conversation between Bil and Charlotte ( when she was about 5 years old), as they shared a piece of Chocolate Almond Chiffon Pie:
Char: Mommy makes the best pie in the whole world!
Bil: You're right! She really loves us, doesn't she?
Char: Yes, mommy loves us lots and lots!
Bil: And we love her.
Char: Yes, I love mommy sooooo much! She is the best cooker EVER!
Bil: And mommy's pretty funny, isn't she?
Char: Yes. And mommy makes really good chocolate chip cookies!
Bil: You love it when mommy is silly with you, don't you?
Char: Mmmhmmmm....I also love mommy's Rice Krispie Treats and the cakes she makes!
Bil: And don't you love how nice mommy is to you?
Char: Yes! She makes me brownies and they are deeeelicious! And I love her pies and her cakes and her cookies! Oh, mommy makes the best treats in the world. Her peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are yum, yum, yummy! I really, really love mommy! And I love the muffins and cupcakes she makes, too. Mommy is great!
Mommy: Hey, Charlotte, what if I couldn't make you treats anymore? Would you still love me?
Char: (woeful) Nope. I would be soooooooooooooooo sad!
