Manipulation Or Brutal Honesty?

Zoey: “Mommy, can I pat your squishy belly?”
(starts doing so without waiting for me to answer).
“Is there a baby in there?”

Me: “No. There is not a baby in there. Our baby is over there.” (pointing to Eleanor, who is currently trying to eat my slippers).

Zoey: “Your belly is squishy. And big. There’s a baby in there.”

Me: “There is not a baby in there.”

Zoey: “Yeah, it’s a baby.”

Me: “Here Zoey, you can have the rest of my cookie.”

Why do I feel like I was set up?
