Yes, motherhood is really like this.

Iman: (pulling a hairclip out of her hair) Fa-yi-yi!

Me: Yes, butterfly!

Iman: (offering to put the hairclip into my mouth) Oooh! Fa-yi-yi!

Me: No dear, I don’t want to eat the butterfly.

(Iman reconsiders and tries another idea.)

Me: Thank you sweetie, but I don’t want it in my nose either.
