Me: What's going on?
Brinley: Ben took my peaches.
Me: Did you take her peaches? Where are they?
Ben: They're in my pocket.
I look at his pockets bewildered.
Ben: They're pretend peaches!
Me: Oh! ....give Brinley back her peaches.
He does. She's happy as a lark until he grabs, yells "I got your peaches" and runs away. She starts crying again.
So, my apologies to all the people who bought my kids gifts at Christmas, they would rather play with their pretend peaches : )
