This morning, Amy dressed and then decked herself out in some crazy accessories (notice the belt with a skirt that has a tie waist). She asked me if she could have some "chocolate lipstick" which is any lipstick in a brown shade -- and pink eye shadow.
I obliged (see photo) and this is how the conversation went:
Amy: Mommy, do I look like Mzzzzz G?
Me: Yes, you do. You look beautiful (said very dramatically).
Amy: Mommy, please call me Amy G. That's my new name.
Me: Okay, Amy G.
Amy: Do I look 8 (as in years old)?
Me: Yes, you look very mature.
Amy: How old is Mzzzz G.?
Me: You never ask a lady how old she is.
Amy: (Ignoring me) Is Mzzz G. 8?
Me: Yes, Mzzz G. is 8.
End of story ... so G has a 5-year-old wanna-be / prodigy who thinks that she is very glamorous and also believes that she is 8 years old.
What can I say?
