That conversation went like this:
B: What did you do with my binky?
Me (trying to be sensitive and gentle): Hmm, I think we sent it to a teeny baby who needed one.
B (drawn back with a disgusted face): After it was in my mouth?! Why didn't you just throw it in the trash?
HA! Guess I don't need to sugar coat things for my big bad 5-yr-old now!
