Cosette: "Mommy, Eli says men are greater than ladies. That's not true, is it?
Me: Well, that depends on what you mean by 'greater', Eli.
Eli: Well, I mean, you know....stronger!
Me: Oh, well, yes, generally speaking, God created men to be physically stronger than women because they have important things to do, like work hard and protect their families. But that doesn't mean that there can't be strong ladies too, okay Eli?
Eli: Okay, but men are braver, right, Mommy?
Cosette: No, Eli, that's not true, because our Mommy is very, VERY brave!
Me: (With raised eyebrows, remembering the fact that I'm too chicken to swallow a teensy tiny pill, and I scream at the very mention of the word 'mouse') Um....how so, Cosette?
Cosette: Well, having a baby and going into labor is very, very hard, so that makes you very, very brave, right, Mommy?
Hhmm............well, when you look at it that way, she has a good point, you know ;)
