Is the cup half full, or half …. dead?

Putting the girls to sleep, Kathleen is complaining about her knee, which she banged into the couch earlier.

Kathleen: “Dad, you need to get me a band-aid.”

Me: “A band aid won’t help”

Kathleen: “Then what will?”

Me: “Time. You know, Ben Franklin once wrote ‘Time is an herb that cures all diseases.'”

Kathleen: “No. Time is a thief that steals all your loved ones.'”

Me: “Good Lord little girl!?!?!?”

Where was it that I was supposed to have learned how to deal with moments like this?
