That Was Charlotte

Me and Butch:  *various exclamations of disapproval and exasperation* What?!  No.  We don't play with clean clothes!

But You're Awesome

Me: *moving from the driver's seat to the passenger's seat*

Molly: What are you doing?

Me: Moving to the other seat so Daddy can drive.

Molly: But why?

Me: Well, Mommy doesn't like to drive with Daddy.

Molly: But you're awesome when you drive!

Too Big

Molly:  *being sassy, shorty after having been told we'd take away her new "big-girl" booster seat if she didn't sit in it correctly* Well ... I'm gonna take away your big-boy chair!  I'm gonna take your chair, and then you will not drive!  I'm gonna take away your chair because you are getting to big for it!

Butch:  *sotto voce, to me*  Did she just call me fat?
