“Klarochka, when we come back from Montreal…”
“No, Mommy! We can’t come back from Montreal! Mimi [her 9-year-old cousin] needs to play with me. A lot!”
She is such a smart kid. Of course, it’s not about her wanting to play with the cousin. No, she’s all about looking out for Mimi’s interests purely out of the goodness of her heart, and mommy is trying to squash her altruistic principles.
She’s going to be a lot of fun once she hits teenage years.
