Allie - "I'm not sure purple will always be my favorite color. What if there's another color waiting for me to discover it?"
While driving in the van to their gymnastics show:
Allie - "Come on person riding a bike. You are supposed to be on the sidewalk."
Me - "Actually, he's okay. Those kind of bikes are supposed to ride with the traffic."
Allie - "Oh. I don't like it though. Every time we drive by one, I'm afraid we are going to hit them."
Me - "I know. You just have to drive slow and be careful."
Emily - "I'm just going to let my husband do all the driving." (Meanwhile, I was the one driving. Rich was already in line for the show.)
Emily - "I'm going to marry B." (Her BFF's younger brother)
Anna - "No! You can't marry someone you already know."
Me - "Yes, you can. You can't marry someone you are related to."
Anna - "Oh."
Allie - "I don't know if you can marry him, Emily. What if you aren't the love of his life?"
Emily was making a mountain out of a molehill:
Me - "Em, seriously, don't flip out over that. It's nothing."
Allie - "Yeah, Emily. It's not like a person wearing a monster costume is trying to eat you."
