no, you are

Time: Lunch on Friday.
Place: Sitting at the kitchen table eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
People: Hannah and Lily.

Lily: sweetly,  " preeetty."

Hannah: also sweetly,  "No, you're pretty."

Lily: perturbed,  "No, Hannah. YOU pretty."

Hannah: laughing,  "Nah-uh. YOU'RE pretty."

Lily: angry,  "NO, HANNAH!!! YOU PRETTY!!! YOU!!!"

Hannah: gaily,  "So are you!"

Lily: turning to me with tears rolling down her chubby little cheeks,  "Sunny! Hannah bein' mean!"

Hannah: *looks confused*

Lily: *sobbing by this time*

Me: *Laughing too hard to be much help to either of them*
