Me: so, who did you play with today?
Avery: well, we were reading an animal book and Coen said I was not his best friend.
Me: *audible gasp* he did?! Well, that wasn't very nice.
Avery: yeah, it made me very, very sad.
Me: I bet it did. Why? Why did he say that.?
Avery: I-I-I don't know why he said it!
Me: well, it's ok. I'm sorry you got sad, though.

Avery: Daddy, we were reading an animal book and Coen said I was not his best friend.
Rob: whatever. Who cares about him anyway? Hey, you know what you should do?
Rob: tomorrow, you should pretend Coen doesn't exist. Don't even talk to him. And find a new best friend. What bout Stella?
Avery: yeah, Stella!
