Mary: Did it hurted you when you pushed John out?
(That was completely out of the blue, and after that she asked how I pushed him out. I am not read to discuss these things with a 4-year-old!)
Clare: (holding a doll) She’s my baby. I’m the mommy.
Me: What’s your favorite part of being a mommy?
Clare: Umm. Giving gummies!
(Guess getting gummy vitamins truly is the highlight of her life)
Mary: Are these snickerdoodle muffins cousins with mushrooms?
Clare: (standing in front of the toilet, pants down, with TP tucked between her butt cheeks, like a tail) I’m a puppy. Ruff!
