* We got a new car about 6 weeks ago. It's the same car, just a new model. Lily was pretty excited about it at first. But lately she's been a little sad about our old car, especially that someone else is driving it now. "Mom! I know what we can do. The fairy and I will do a magic spell and turn this car into our old car and make it green again!"
*She wanted to carry Imogene around the house the other day. I told her about how they both had to get bigger, and somehow I ended my answer with 'then you'll be in good shape.' Lily's response: "Yeah, because right now I'm really a rectangle. And Imogene is a circle."
*"I want Imogene to grow so she can be a big sister like me."
*"Will Imogene be my baby sister forever and ever? For my whole entire life?"
*First thing out of her mouth when she woke up one morning: "I have basketball camp today. You will need to take me there and then I'll eat my lunch and the bus will bring me home."
*Very into teeth falling out (our neighbor just lost his first tooth) "Oh gosh. I forgot to put my tooth back in. Here it is." "Oops, there's my loose tooth again." "Mom, how many tooths have I lost?"
