Tess, who can't say "r" very well.
(maybe because of the overbite from sucking those fingers...)
Tess- I wanna have pears.
Me- We don't have any pears. Would you like an apple?
Tess- No, I wanna have pears.
Me- Ok, but we don't have any pears. We have apples, and bananas, and oranges, but no pears. Do you want a banana?
Tess- No! No, I wanna pears!
(she wanders away for a bit, then comes back carefully carrying all the candles from the Advent wreath. She comes over and carefully hands me each one and says, "Pears! I wanna have these pears!"
Me- Tess, we don't have any pears! (Then a light bulb finally goes on) Oh! You want to have PRAYERS?!
Tess- Yes! Yes, I wanna have these pears!
So, we did. Even though it wasn't prayer time. Because she worked so hard for it. :)
