Mom: "Nothing, it is just broken. Daddy is trying to fix it."
Emma: "But why it not working?"
Mom: "I am sure Daddy would like to know why it is not working, but he is trying to see. Let's just watch."
Emma: "Maybe he run into something and that why it not working."
Mom: "Sometimes you don't have to run into anything for it to stop working."

Emma, "But what did I run into?"
Mom: "Nothing. It is just broken."
Emma: "And it is not working?"
Mom: "Nope. So how are we going to get your bike home?"
