I've been going about this all wrong.

Olivia: When I grow up, I’m going to be the BEST mommy ever!
Me: Better than ME?
Olivia: Yes!
Me: So your kids will never have to clean their rooms?
Olivia (pondering): Well . . . . I will HELP them EVERY time!
Me: And your kids will never have to eat vegetables?
Olivia (pondering): Well . . . only the ones they LIKE!
Me: Which veggies do you like?
Olivia: Only fried broccoli. (???)
Me: And your kids will never have to take naps?
Olivia: YES! And NO QUIET TIME! And I’ll let them stay up as late as they want. So there!
Me: And you won’t put them in the naughty spot?
Olivia: I won’t put them in the naughty spot OR time out. I’ll only talk to them!
Olivia: AND . . . . they can have candy WHENEVER they want!

(This is Olivia giving Smarties to her future offspring.)
