Milo is obsessed with these granola bars for kids, which, despite their organic ingredients, are little more than cookies in the shape of granola bars. Yesterday, he wandered around the house, wailing, "I WANT Z BAR! I WANT Z BAR!" Lucy trailed behind him, mocking his wails. Me: Lucy, don't make fun of your brother.
Lu: Mom, I am not making fun of him. I am copying him, which the same as imitating him, which is more like mimicking him.
Me: Lucy, don't mimic your brother.
Milo: I WANT Z BAR!
