Me: Avila, do you know what word we can't say during Lent?
Her: Santa Claus.
Me: Avila, what did you dream about last night?
Her: I dreamed that Sally saw seashells by the seashore.
Me: What did you draw, honey?
Her: A chalice.
Me: Do you know what's inside a chalice?
Her: Mom, what is that that Max has?
Me: It's his lovey (a stuffed animal to cuddle with at bedtime).
Her, to Max: Oh, Maxie! You are so grown up!
Overheard at the grocery store:
Her: You've got to get yourself together. You got stuck in a moment and can't get out of it...
(bonus points to those that can name the song/artist. Here's a hint, this one's for you Deacon Bryan.)
Max has some tricks of his own, although he is too busy eating to talk all that much...
