Same Day

Eight-Year-Old: Elephants! Elephants falling in cheese!

Wife: The lighter colored parts are less chili flavored.
Eight-Year-Old: But those taste disgusting too.

Eight-Year-Old: No, really, why?

Me: Cake…
Five-Year-Old: [Eight-Year-Old]’s a cake!
Eight-Year-Old: No, I’m not!
Five-Year-Old: Yes, you are a cake.
Eight-Year-Old: You’d better not eat me, if I am a cupcake.

But I don’t think it’s very likely that I am.
