The older I get the more I sound like my mother

Earlier today I kept the Bunny* (age 7) and the Princess (age 3) quiet for about 15 seconds by letting them play with magnets on our front door. (I don't know why, but they stick, and it's out of the way, unlike the fridge door.)

It only lasted about 15 seconds, of course. Then I had the following conversation:

Me: "Stop throwing magnets, both of you."

Bunny: "She was throwing them at me!"

Me: "If she jumped off a bridge would you do it?"

Bunny: "NO!"

Me: "Okay then."

Bunny: "...why did you ask me that?"

Apparently it's not a comparison her mother has ever used.

*So called because she's small, fast, and fond of popping up out of nowhere.
