O: Mommy, what’s that?
Me: It’s a Q-tip.
O: What do it do?
Me: You use it to clean your ears.
O: And belly button. Do I clean ears?
Me: No, you never put things in your ears. Only mommy does.
Me: Because you can hurt yourself and you won’t be able to hear.
O: But when I am old, I can do it.
O: And then you become the baby, and I clean your ears.
Me: laugh Ok. You can take care of Mommy when you are older.
O: I become the Mommy, and you become the baby.
Me: Ok, that’s a plan.
O: And Daddy is Daddy.
