"Do you love me mommy?"
"Yes I do. Do you love me?
Shakes his head, "No, because you say things."
"Really? What things do I say?"
"Well I don't love you because you say things like "no" and "stop" and other bad things like that, and that is why I don't love you."
"Well that's true I do say those things, but do you know that I tell you "no" and "stop" to protect you or teach you because I DO love you?"
"Hmmm...I don't know."
