[On why Emmett should wear his new-to-him leather bomber jacket]: "It's a man's jacket. It's a rock-and-roll jacket!" - Where does she learn these things?!
"When Joey grows up, he's going to be strong like a girl!" - You go, girl!
[After I asked if it's nice to be home playing with her own toys, after all our travels]: "Yeah, but I like when we go on adventures, too." "Adventures?" "Yeah, like when we go see other people . . . and when we go to Paris . . ." - Note, this has not happened yet, but she has been convinced, since she learned that's where her Great Aunt and Uncle live, we will be visiting Paris when she turns six. She has no idea where that is or why anyone else would want to visit, except to visit Uncle Gary and Aunt Becky.
"When I was getting eaten by a dinosaur, a snake came out, because the dinosaur ate it, too. And it was scary and I said, 'Stop, you snake!' [insert Heisman pose here]. And then we played together inside the dinosaur. And we lived happily ever after." - Mark my words, this girl will be a writer someday.
Every day is a new adventure with this one.
