Some nuggets pulled from my conversations with Avila...thanks, in part, to Sid the Science Kid and Dinosaur Train.
Me: Avila, what are you painting?
Her: The Mesozoic era.
Me: Avila, why in the world did you just toss your cup on the floor?
Her: I didn't do it. Gravity pulled it down.
After I turned on the lights to the Christmas tree...
Her: Oh wow. What a beautiful light source!
Me: Hey, look. When you push on the baby in my tummy it bounces back.
Her: Yeah. That's called elasticity.
After handing her a plate with waffles and syrup...
Her: I have a hypothesis.
Me: What is it?
Her: My hypothesis is that these waffles are gonna be good. (insert big bite) Yup, I was right.
And this smarty-pants one liner was thought of without any help:
Me: Joy to the world!!!!! (channeling National Lampoon's XMAS Vacation, after daddy turned on the outside Christmas lights for the first time)
Her: Mom, why did you sing that dumb song for?
