Baylor: Daddy, I want to tell you about what happened at Oma's house today.
Bryson: Okay, buddy.
Baylor: Oma's friend, Lory, was there. I got to meet her.
Baylor: Yup, I call her Lory 2. Because she's the second Lory I've met.
Me: I see.
Baylor: And ... (with all the warmth in the world) she's the love of my heart. (sighs and smiles) She was so nice to me!
Baylor: Did you know every day is Mother's Day?
Me: Oh really?
Baylor: (sweetly) Yeah.
Me: Why do you say that?
Baylor: (sweetly) Because we're such good kids to you.
(During a playdate with Mollie's little neighborhood buddy, Ainsley ...)
Me: Ainsley, if you have to go potty, you need to walk through the kitchen. I can show you where it is.
Ainsley: She said you didn't have one.
Me: Wait, Mollie said we didn't have a potty?
Me: Amalia! (to Ainsley) That isn't true. We have a few. Just let me know if you need help finding one.
Amalia: (from the living room while she and Baylor were building Lego sets) Mommy, what rhymes with "ancestors"?
