Made up of children

My 4 year old niece (who is younger to my nephew) has begun to assert her place in the family and her demands to be treated on par with her elder brother are on the increase.  However, she is also at a stage where she is neither fluent in Konkani (our mother tongue) nor in English! 

The latest, I'm told, is the claim to sit on the front seat in the car, beside the driver.  Mostly her brother would sit on someone's lap in the front seat.  Now she wants her turn too!  Mum tried to dissolve the situation by saying, "Small children are not supposed to sit in the front," to which her question was instant, "Isn't Chris too made up of children?"  (I suppose she meant, "Isn't Chris too a child?")
