Xander: What's that?
Me: That's called cursive writing.
X: But, what is it?
Me: It's just a fancy way of writing.
X: Is it French or something?
(I was getting dressed one morning when Amelia Jayne came in before I had my shirt on.)
AJ: Your bottom!
Me: What? Is there something on my bottom?
AJ: (points to my chest) That's your bottom! That's funny!
Me: (baffled at first, then I looked down) Hmmm...that's called cleavage, sweetie.
Amelia Jayne: Look, Mimi! Eye patch!
(Grabs Mimi's bra from the bedpost and proceeds to put it on her head...as an eye patch. Or head patch as it turned out to be. Ha!)
X: Amelia Jayne didn't eat her gummies today.
Me: Yes, because she got them taken away. She hit and kicked at school today.
X: Well, I didn't hit or kick. I just concentrated on my work and ate lunch and all that.
The next day...
X: Did Amelia Jayne hit or kick today?
Me: No, she did great!
X: Oh good. I continued to concentrate on my work today.
