Making snacks in the kitchen together:
J: If life was like a TV show it would be so cool. All the problems get solved in half an hour.
(A rather good observation for a 10 year old who never watches TV methinks.)
This evening, before bed with Edie:
Edie: Where's my Papa, Mama?
Me: Papa is at work tonight. Do you miss Papa?
Edie: No, I don't miss him because I am not crying. I am happy with my Mama because I am a baby jaguar. (squeaky voice) Baby jaguar, baby jaguar, I'm a baby jaguar"
... We continue getting ready for bed and talking together ...
Me: Edie, what book shall we read tonight?
Edie: No! Baby jaguar!
(Guess I got her identity wrong. An hour earlier she was "a twicewatops" dinosaur.)
At the dinner table:
E: When I was a little girl I had a big fire engine and Jay Jay had a big bus and they were friends!"
