1. I overheard this conversation while Emma was playing with a couple of dolls and role playing with them.
Emma: I hate you.
Mom: Don't talk about hating people even if we are just playing.
Emma: (resumes playing) I want you to go away.
2. This conversation took place a few days after ear infections and strep throats hit our household.
Emma: Why does it keep raining?
Mom: Because it's a rainy day. (not the most scientific answer, but it's all I could think of)
Elias: Sometimes we have rainy days and sometimes we have crying days.
Mom: What is a crying day?
Elias: It's when all the kids cry alot. (duh)
3. Only in warm Californis does this confusion occur
Mom: Wear the other jacket this one is too heavy.
Elias: Am I not strong enough for this one?
