Causation, Correlations and the laws of independence

Yesterday, it occurred to me that the kid who keeps asking us kaapi Kappi is probably a mite too chubby. Here is the conversation that followed

me: sophia, You are a tad fat. you keep asking us to carry carry
Sophia: I am not fat. mummy is fat
Me: Maybe, but I dont say carry carry. I still walk. But if you say carry carry, you will have a fat bum
Sophia: Mummy has a fat bottom, Anjali has a fat bottom, Daddy has a fat bottom. Mummy, you ave a fat bottom whether you say carry carry or not.
