"Da paint splash on me."
"Tessa, that's not true. Tell Mama the truth."
"I so sharwy, Mama. Um... a ant cwalled in da paint and den he cwalled on my leg and he got paint all over me."
"Tessa." (stiffling my giggle) "That is a fib. You need to tell me the truth."
"I so sharwy. I paint on my leg. But that's OK cuz I am saying sharwy."
(I learned today there actually was an ant involved. Apparently it was crawling up her leg and suffered death by finger-paint!)
