On me vacuuming:
"Mama, Don't suck the Schmoopette into the vacuum cleaner!"
On getting older:
"My legs are getting long, and my shadow is bigger. I am getting strong. I am getting power."
On post-vacation city life :
"Can we go back to Hawaii? It's not noisy there."
"If I become strong will I turn green like the Incredible Hulk?"
On being a good big brother:
"D is too little to understand [presumably the plot of "Toy Story"], but I'll explain it to her."
On bugs stuck in the kitchen light fixture:
"Do you think they'll get together and make a door to get out?"
--I have to say, I find my 3.5-year-old more and more entertaining (and wise) as each day passes. To witness the creation of a personality, a character, a sense of self is indeed a blessing.
