She Doesn't Know Better

Molly:  *talking to the stylist, Jerry, while getting her hair cut*  Pink is my favorite color. 

Jerry:  That's cool. Pink is a pretty color. I really like purple. 

Molly:  Yeah, that's Charlotte's favorite color. She doesn't know any better.

You're Not Very Good at This

Me:  *after a show on Netflix kept messing up at a certain point*  I don't know what's wrong with it.  It's just jacked up.

Molly:  Well ... maybe Daddy will have to fix it when he gets home.  *pause*  I wish Daddy were here working the controller ... 'cause you're not very good at this.  You're just not very good at this.

So Sad

Molly:  *whining*  Oh, it's hard to wait.  *sighs*

Me:  I know, but we have to wait sometimes.

Molly:  But I want a brownie now.

Me:  I know, but we can't have one right now.  You can have a brownie after dinner.

Molly:  But that's so long.  I want one now.

Me:  But you have to wait.  Or if you keep whining about it, you won't get one at all.  I'll just eat them all up.

Molly:  *gasp* But don't do that!  That will be so sad.

Molly: I don't want to ride in an airplane. 

Me: Why not? It's really fun.

Molly: Because I might fall out the window. 

Me: *suppressing laughter* Oh, it's ok, baby. The windows don't open, so you can't fall out of them. 

Molly: *considers this new information* Okay then. I guess I'll ride in an airplane.

Talk Daddy

Molly: *on the phone when we called from Kansas City after our flight home from Vegas* Here's Charlotte. 

Charlotte: Hi!

Me: Hi, baby!

Charlotte: Talk Daddy.

Molly:  ... and they're trying to keep the Earf clean. 

Butch:  Earf?

Molly:  Uh-huh. Because animals leave glitter everywhere. And we have to clean it up.

Charlotte Took It

Me:  *to Charlotte*  Where's your juice cup?

Charlotte:  *her answer for everything missing*  Mo-wee toot it!  (Molly took it!)

Me:  Um, no.  Molly did not take it.

Charlotte:  *pausing to think*  Shot toot it!  (Charlotte took it.)

Good Babysitter

Molly:  *pointing to The Nightmare Before Christmas on Netflix*  Hey!  Me and Bethie watched that!  She was being a good babysitter.  *pause*  And we were being good kids.
