Brooklyn: I have to tell you something, but I don't want you to get mad.
Me: You can tell me. I won't get mad.
Brooklyn: Well, my pretend Prince gave me a pretend phone--see? (she holds up the pretend phone for me to see) and sometimes I call my pretend Prince and Eunice at school. I'm sorry.
Me: Okay, well, I don't care if you call them. Maybe it would be best to just call them at home.
Brooklyn: But what if I'm at school and they try to call me?
Me: Well, you could let it go to voicemail.
Brooklyn: Okay! (Skips off happily.)
I'm so grateful for these kinds of problems.
