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.

Inocent problem, simple solution, kid skips away happily. If only these are the problems, and their responses in 10 years.

That is hilarious! And you know what? Letting things just go to voicemail is an extremely important life lesson, way to teach it early. :)
