LM: I would like Cheerios for breakfast.
Me: Very good. Get the box while I grab a bowl.
LM: I’d like a big bowl.
LM: Your dad smoked, and so he died.
Me: Yes, he did.
LM: I would like soy milk.
Me: No problem.
LM: Why did the girl have to look back? [Ed. note: Reference to that play about Orpheus we saw at the NAC.]
Me: She just wanted to see if the man was following her. She couldn’t help herself.
LM: Why did he have to stay in jail?
Me: It wasn’t jail, it was a place where people go to live when they die.
LM: Can I have some apple juice?
LM: You don’t know everything.
Me: Um, okay.
LM: You don’t know the whole world.
Me: That’s right.
LM: Why did Maddie say Never Ever Ever Ever? [Ed. note: Reference to both The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and High School Musical 3. I actually understand about 90% of her crazy segues, which is crazy itself.]
Me: It was her line. She was in a play and that was what she had to say. You have to say what they tell you to say when you are in a play.
LM: Your Mommy did not die. Your Mommy is Nanny.
Me: That is correct.
LM: Can I be done now?
Me: Yes. Can I lie down now?
