But in my attempt to try, here are 13 things I've heard recently from my children:
"Do dinosaurs ever need band-aids?"
"See, here in the front of the book is the Table of Continents."
"NO! I don't want clean teeth!"
"Yes, I do want dentist drill holes in my teeth 'cause I didn't brush. I do!"
"Does anybody ever run out of kisses?"
"Tomorrow starts my Stanford testing at school and we're supposed to eat a good breakfast. You should make me eggs! I know, one day I can have scrambled eggs and the next hard-boiled eggs -- but you'll have to make those the night before."
"Knights don't have capes!"
"What do I have to eat to get dessert?"
"Is it almost Christmas?" (Me: "Um, no, Christmas is 11 months away")
"Are stinky people real?"
"I want just pants, no diaper, no underwear! Just pants!"
"No, you can't be Spiderman even if you are wearing the Spiderman costume, you have to be Spidergirl."
"Mommy, do you love Isabella (that's our dog) even though she has bad breath?"
