Harassing Haley: "What did you just say?! 'Me and Grace is...'?! Who taught you how to talk? Who taught you grammar?!"
Overwhelmed with little girl chatter this evening as Grace hosted two of her friends (our power and AC are on). Thus I found myself having dinner with three nieces and these two friends: the combined ages of my dinner companions equaled my own. Earlier, they had squealed gleefully to see a Wii representation that they'd made of me get eaten by a ghost in a game....
None of my nieces are fond of fireworks and their volume. 5 year-old Sophie made sure to bring ear protection, explaining matter-of-factly to me, "Because I get infections."
Sophie, aged 5, trying to dissuade me from eating their dog while they're on vacation, finally comes up with: "He doesn't have a lot of calories."
