Kids and their amazing grasp of subtle language cues

Just had the sweetest discussion with my first-born grandchild:

“Grandma, can you buy me this candy bar?”

“Gracie, it’s full of sugar. Sugar rots your teeth and will make your nose drop off.”

“I’m OK with that, Grandma.”

OMG―she understands hyperbole and irony at age 9! (Could that be genetic?)
