“They’re hard words for like someone else, but they’re easy for me!”

“Mommy, why is your birthday on my snack day?”

Mommy: “I’m 35. Is that old, or not that old?” Leila: “Not that old. It could be like you’re a teenager.”

“This smells like the yoga studio, and I like this smell…I like to go there in your class with you.”

“No. We’re not tired. We’re never tired.” (Believe “we” is referring to kids in general.)

Mommy: “You have a cough too?” Leila: “No. I’m not like you! I have energy!”

Referring to her hole-in-one at putt-putt, “Daddy is this the time I got the puck in the hole?”

After Daddy told her to cancel the rain if she wanted to swim at the birthday party, “I’ve got some magic, but I guess it’s asleep.”

Wondering why her aunt was going to watch her while I worked, “Mommy, why doesn’t N work at the shop and you stay home and play with me?”

“Every time the door bell rings it is always someone else. One time it was Daddy, one time it was E. Sometimes it’s the wind. It’s very confusing.”

“Saturday’s are kind of like errand days with a little bit of playing, but Sundays are the best!”

“But when I was a four-year-old…I remember one time after naptime I accidentally screamed in the hallway.” (Sharing a memory of misbehavior after reading Ramona the Pest.)

Referring to the house in The Great Muppet Caper, “That’s a fancy house. It doesn’t have any toys.”

“Daddy let’s see who runs the fastest. It’s not a race.”

Mommy: “Can you hold the flowers?” Leila: “Of course, I’d be happy to!”

“But I had so much fun with my friends I forgot about everything at home!”

Explaining a games from recess, “When we play family there has to a be a doctor, a baby, and a mom. When we play babies we’re just babies! Does that make sense?”

“There’s bags on every party with fun stuff.”
