DS10:  Mom, I know how to judge people as geometric shapes. You know, people who always have to make their point... they're triangles. People who have no point at all are circles.

Me:  So what are you?

DS10 (said with certainty):  I'm a triangle.

Me:  And what am I?

DS10:  I think you're a ... circle.

Me:  And Dad?

DS10: (long pause)... Well, you know him better than I do!

Me:  Are there other shapes as well, like rectangles or octagons?

DS10:  Nope.  Just circles and triangles!

DD4: Can you pretend to be my mom? 

Me (her Mom): Sure. 

DD4: I'll call you Mom; you can call me Lily Sunshine.
