This is what Fergus asked me last night, as we were having a intimate, cozy moment, me toweling him off after his warm bath:
FERGUS: Mommy. If I cut Maddie’s feet off wif a knife. Would she not be able to walk anymore?
MOMMY manages to under-react.
MOMMY: Hmm, I don’t know, but I don’t think that’s a nice thing to say.
FERGUS: I not saying I DO it. I just saying IF I did it.
Oh, OK. In THAT case, there’s no problem here at all.
