Me: "What is it BabyLuv? You can tell Mama and Baba anything, okay?"
Zeina: "It's not a secret but it's important. Okay?"
Me: "Okay, what is it?"
Zeina: "I like donuts with rainbow sprinkles more than donuts with pink sprinkles even though Pink is my favorite color. It's important that you understand what I just told you. Do you understand what I just told you?"
Me: "I think so."
