Sophia came home with a splinter in her leg today. She was bothered by it. She asked me to remove it. Of course she asked how I would remove it. I said probably with some tweezers and a needle.
Her eyes got big, "A needle! Like the pointy thing you use for sewing?"
With tears in her eyes, "No, no, no! If you use the needle, I will not be your daughter anymore! It will hurt! No Mom NO!"
She was happy that I ended up removing the splinter without a needle and I was happy to know that I still have a daughter!
