(a verbatim conversation from earlier today with a toddler)
i want a tattoo.
you can have a tattoo when you are older, when you are 18 years old.
i want a tattoo TODAY.
do you want a tattoo like mommy does? of the tree of life on her arm?
NO. i want a Star Wars tattoo.
that’s why they don’t let 3 year olds get tattoos.
i want a darth maul tattoo. i want his face. would that be a good tattoo?
i don’t think so. i don’t think anybody wants to look at his scary face all the time.
i think he was mean when he was a baby.
i think darth maul was a mean baby. i think he punched the other babies when he was a baby.
sorry sorry i know it’s not funny.
no it is funny. i think it will be a really good tattoo.
