The 4 year old: I feel deep down in my heart that I am a big girl.
Little A: But, Mama, I already went potty… last week!
G: I tell you, Alex, skunks are not related in any way to civets!
A: So why do they have musk glands?
G: I don’t know, but I read it in the encyclopedia! No matter what anybody says!
O. haltingly sounding out: The… bad… pig… sat… on… the… cat. Hahahaha.
R. out of the blue: You know what? I am gonna be true to the end!
Me: True to what?
R: To God, of course!
Two little girls looking at an American Girl doll catalog: We will probably never get dolls like this…But sometimes when little girls don’t beg and just be sweet, they get what they want for Christmas.
R. dreamily: There must be something inside us, like in our hearts, that makes us just love things.
G: If anybody ever says they want a female cat, we could just tell them our story.
Me: I love my life!
