... but not to me.
(backstory: early morning, still dark out, birds just waking up, K&M have been up for some time now. L&I are still abed, sleeping hard....)
K: Mommy, you not pretty right now.
M (actually spoken): Really? You know it's not nice to say something like that to someone. If you don't think they look good, you shouldn't say anything about it. Why don't you think I look pretty?
M (tempted to say - note: speculative): I know. It's early, not even 5.30 yet, but I had to get up because you were awake and wanted to come downstairs and I was hoping to let your daddy and sister sleep a bit longer in hopes that they don't catch the same cold you've got and are now giving to me.
