Dirt Makes Me Happy

Molly:  *spotting a mound of dirt at a construction site we drove past*  Look!  Look at that dirt!
Me:  Oh wow, yeah, that's a big pile of dirt.  I bet you'd like to dig in that dirt, huh?
Molly:  *nodding*  Yeah.
Me:  You just love playing in the dirt, don't you?
Molly:  Yeah.  Dirt makes me happy.

Hurting Me

Molly: *whines softly and fidgets as she's supposed to be falling asleep*

Me: What's wrong?

Molly: It's hurting me.

Me: What's hurting you?

Molly: Bedtime. Bedtime is hurting me.

Looks Like You

Butch:  *handing Molly a Swiffer duster after she begged for one all morning so she could help clean* Here you go.  Go to town.

And You Aren't There with Me

Molly:  *wanders out to the living room after waking up in the middle of the night*
Me:  *reading on the couch* What's wrong, Molly?
Molly:  *in the most pitiful voice ever heard* The cover just get off me.  The cover not on me, and you aren't there with me.

Me:  *discussing how Molly got permanent marker on herself during a visit to the band room*  You know, that's like Daddy's biggest fear.
Butch:  I know.  I was freaking out when I saw her.  Meredith kept telling me to calm down and let her be a kid.
Molly:  Exactly.  Exactly, Daddy.
