Charlotte: Ya, cause you've already lived a longer life than we have.
Maya: You've been alive waaaaay longer than us.
Charlotte: Ya, we weren't even alive when you were 16.
Maya: We weren't even alive when you were in college!
Maya: Mommy, I've been thinking about this a lot for the past few days. When I grow up, I want to be a teacher. Like Jesus.
Charlotte: When I grow up, I want to be a shark therapist!
Charlotte (running into the room, out of breath): Mom! A piece of money just fell into Milo's mouth and he swallowed it!
Me: What? How did that happen?
Maya: He was laying on his back with his mouth open, and we were making it rain money, and a piece fell into his mouth and he swallowed it.
(trying to help Charlotte sound out the word "pop" from banangram tiles)
Me: What is this letter?
Charlotte: "p", /p/
Me: Right! What's this one?
Me: Yep. O says "ah" like "octopus". Do you think you can sound out the word?
Charlotte: The only word I can think of that it might be is "poctopus".
