Butterfly or a Woman?

Yesterday, as I was washing dinner dishes, Emily and Amy were playing fairy godmother. Emily was at the kitchen table and said "Mom, I am going to turn you into a butterfly." And presto she did her magic swing of the wand.

I continued to wash dishes for a second and replied "oh, Emily I am such a beautiful butterfly" and then turned to look at her as I stopped washing dishes (leaving the water running). I looked at her and said "now that I am a butterfly I don't have to wash dishes anymore because I have no hands, I am free." Emily quickly replied "oh no Mom, I am turning you back into a woman." I asked "why did you do that," she said "because I am not going to wash the dishes."
