Oh, dear Avila, you have the funniest things to say...

Me: "Avila, what book do you want to read?"
Her: "Little Red Ride Rollinghood."

Overheard at the kitchen table:
"Oh, grandma, what big eyes you have. The better to see you with, my dear. Oh, what big elbows you have. The better to knock you over with, my dear. Oh, what a big chin you have. The better to choke you with, my dear."

Her: "Mom, what's your counting number?"
Me: "My what?"
Her: "You know, your counting number."
Me: "Oh, you mean my age?"

Her: "Siri and Ellie and grandpa are my best friends."
Me: "Well, what about me?"
Her: "You're daddy's best friend."

Again, overheard at the dinner table:
"Dear Jesus, please give me a baby sister. And I want her name to be Solo."
