On things you might say if Daddy’s acting and domestic duties collide: “Wipe my bottom, Big Bad Wolf.”

On how to play chess: “Brown on brown and vanilla on vanilla. It’s easy.”

On what she wants for breakfast: “Something spoony.”

On overhearing Daddy’s complicated joke on the use of the word “fresh” in the 80’s: “Why did you say, ‘I don’t need to smell her to see if she’s still good.”

On the cars on the side of the road that had a fender bender: “Does that mean they need to go on a timeout?”

On how the snail smells: “Like meat.”

On recent additions to the downstairs bathroom: “Oh, you have new soap, I see.”

On the eternal bread-related questions: “Why is this toast?”

On why it’s okay that she refusing to nap: “It’s okay if you don’t have a rest. You can still be happy.”

On what to shout to the stranger across the street: “My name’s Abigail and I have a dress on!”

On realizing she didn’t have a dress on: “I’ll wear a dress next time! Fancy, fancy!”
