"Mommy, I want medicine."
"What do you need medicine for? Are you sick?"
"Well, when you had me and Jaina you didn't have any medicine right?"
"That's right, I didn't have any medicine when you were born."
"Ok, well I want to get married but..."
"Ava, you don't have to have a baby when you get married."
"But how, Mama?"
"Well sweetie, just because you get married doesn't mean you have to have a baby. You can just choose not to have one."
"But Mama, how can I not have a baby when I'm married?"
(I promptly changed the subject. I think she's been scarred for life since Oscar was born. She's decided she doesn't ever want to have a baby.)

When Jaina asks you a question, you had better answer right away because she'll say, "Why you not talkin' at me, Mama?"
