More a 'kids do
the funniest things' rather than 'say'...
A friend's daughter had her fourth birthday party on the weekend. The kids' part of it was held at a Build-a-Bear (side note: there's a Build-a-Bear in Canberra?! Awesome!
*ahem* anyway...) and then the festivities moved to a muffin shop where some adult friends without children (the Good Ethnic Boy and I) joined in. So there we all were, eating rainbow cake, with four tiny girls clutching their new bears. Three of the bears had sparkly multicoloured fur, pink tutus or princess dresses, and tiaras.
The fourth bear had bright pink fur and was wearing a Darth Vader outfit, complete with mask.
(I didn't witness it myself, but I'm reliably informed that the father of the 3yo girl in question recently did the whole deep breathy voice thing and informed her that "
Rose... I am your father!" and she responded with a huge grin and dramatic "Noooooooooooo~~~!!!"
She's clearly being raised right.
