Two conversations with Puttachi

I put these up on FB, but they'll just get lost after a while - so recording them here too.

We're expecting someone for dinner and I'm running around trying to do everything at the last moment. As usual. The kid is tailing me, telling me a story. As usual. I'm making an honest attempt to listen to her, but somewhere in the middle, I lose track of the storyline. She notices. As usual.
"Amma!" she says. "You're not listening!"
"Puttachi," I say. "Please continue the story later. My mind is on 100 different things right now."
"If your mind can be on 100 different things, why can't you make it be on 101 different things?" she asks.
I wish, Puttachi, I wish!


Me: Puttachi, time to go to bed!
She: Not sleepy.
Me: When are you ever sleepy?
She: When you wake me up in the morning.
