Emma: Mom, will you read a book with me for a really big bit? (as opposed to 'for a little bit')
Sara: When I grow up I want to be Emma!
Emma: Mom, I cleaned my closet all nice, and you don't even have to look at it.
Mom: Well if it looks so good, I want to see it.
Emma: OK, then just look at it in 10 minutes. (she then ran to clean it up)
Sara: (I had a disc of a season of Friends playing while I was working.) Mom, you already watched 2 shows- The Cat and the Hat, and Word Girl. We have to turn the TV off now!
Emma: Mom, why don't your books have pictures in them.
Mom: Because the words tell me what would be in the pictures.
Emma: Oh, and your pictures look prettier?
Emma: When I read, my pictures will always be very wonderful and pretty.
Sara keeps coming up to me with random bags and purses and saying "Trick or Treat?!" Sometimes she gets a treat, but most times she gets tickles.
Emma: (right after waking up) Mom, what is for dessert?
Mom: Ummm, don't you need to have breakfast first?
Emma: Yes. Breakfast and lunch and a snack and another snack and dinner too. What's for dessert?
Mom: Probably ice cream and brownies.
Sara: Mom can you give me some Daddy snuggles?
Mom: Sure. What are Daddy snuggles?
Sara: You have to snuggle and be Daddy.
Mom: Oh, then probably not. How about some Mommy snuggles.
Sara: Ummm, how about you read me a book. (I guess my snuggles are inferior. . .)
