Emily: Mommy, I have a ring and we're going to get married.
Emily: We're going to get married but we're not going to have a baby right away.

Me: Okay. Whom are you going to marry?

After carefully browsing through the aisles of books and toys, she found something she wanted, a Dora and Boots purse.
How could I say no?
