Jack: I hit Daniel with my shoe.

Mom: You hit him with your shoe?  {Confused, I look at Daniel for an explanation.}

Daniel: Yes, Mommy.  Last night, when you were gone, Jack hit me with his shoe – his church sandal.

Mom: (remembering the story that Mr. Thompson recounted as we laid down last night) Oh, he kicked you?

Daniel: Yes, he did.

Jack (at the same time): Yes, I did.

Mom: Did he forgive you?

Jack: (big smile) He DID!
