Actual conversation with 2-year old

[Scene: Mom is putting Toddler into his car seat in the van on a very grey, overcast winter day in the Pacific Northwest]

Toddler: The moon! I see the moon!

Mom: [looking] No, that's the sun.

T: The moon! The moon!

M: The sun!

T: No, the moon, mommy!

M: The moon then, if it pleases you.

T: [after a pause] The sun.

M: Then God be blessed, it is the blessed sun. But sun it is not if you say it is not, and the moon changes even as your mind!

T: I change mind.
