Things our daughter heard her kids say in the past week:
In the car, on the way to preschool, each twin has a doll. Their conversation, word for word:
Ava Grace: My mommy's home but my daddy's not...he died.
Stella: Oh. Maybe God can bring him back
AG: But you can't see him cuz He's all around.
S: I see Him under my bed.
AG: How 'bout you be God.
S: Ok. Hi. I'm God.
AG: Hey, how 'bout you be Mary.
S: Ok. I'm Mary. (singing) Mary had a little lamb, little lamb...
And a few more...
Ava Grace says in an a loud whine, "Mommy, I really want to get in my mouth..."
Ava Grace says to my mom in the midst of crying while pointing to the air beside her, "Look! There's other Gracie. See her? She's right there." (should I be worried?)
Walking past a restaurant, Stella sweetly declares, "I smell a beeaaauutiful hot dog."
And one more quote, not from my kids, but from a mom at a birthday party last weekend:
kid at party: Mommy, can I have another piece of cake?
Mom: No honey, I want you to have something healthy first. Here's a chicken nugget.
