Conversation at Breakfast

The following conversation took place as we were eating this morning before church:

Grace: Mama, can I watch Mickey Mouse?

Me: No, Grace. It's breakfast time. Please take a bite.

Grace: Daddy, can I watch Mickey Mouse?

Daddy: [distracted, didn't answer] What?

Me: [answers for daddy] No, Grace, we are not watching Mickey Mouse.

Grace: Mama, I wasn't talking to you. I was talking to Daddy. Daddy, can we watch Mickey Mouse?

Oh, the human heart. We then had a "conversation" about when mommy or daddy says "no" you don't go ask the other parent. Of course, I had to keep a straight face.
