"What kind of ache."
"An allergy ache."
"Oookaaaay. Is it a throw-up-feeling ache or a crampy ache, like your muscles are all making fists or a stabby ache, like someone is poking you with something sharp?"
"Everyone has muscles."
"Skyler-Belle's daddy has a lot of muscles. He's really big and strong. He could lift your van. And a house and a church and a stool."
"A stool, huh?"
"No. A SCHool. And a rose."
"Yep. But he would have to be very careful and gentle to lift a rose because he is so strong."
"What about your daddy?"
"Is your daddy as strong as Skyler-Belle's daddy?"
"Because he's not a big guy."*
"So, daddy's not that strong because he's just a little guy."
"No, he's a medium guy."
"Oh, so what can daddy lift?"
"I don't know. Medium stuff. It's a throw-upy ache."
"Mommy, when you have a lot of moneys, I'd like to go to a movie place."
"Oh, you want to see a movie? How about UP? I bet we can work it in this weekend."
"No. I don't want to go to theater to see a movie, I want to go to a movie place and be IN a movie."
"I think I could be on Yo Gabba Gabba. There are kids my age on that show."
"Yeah, but you hate Yo Gabba Gabba**."
"Yeah, but it would be cool to be on TV and I think that's my best bet."
"Sweetie, it's time to get up."
"I don't wanna."
"Look, Penny came to see you. Get up and pet Penny."
"Aack! Get her out of my bed."
"Because Tanner*** says that cats have flies and I don't want flies in my bed."
*The Husband probably outweighs Skyler-Belle's daddy by 50 lbs or so. He probably out-heights him by at least 5 inches. Skyler-Belle's dad is much closer to my size than his.
** We don't actually know that Brynna hates Yo Gabba Gabba. We hate Yo Gabba Gabba, and, like Bratz dolls, we've told her that she hates them since way before she could actually form an opinion of her own. She might really like acid trip kids TV and slutty Barbies, but we don't know that for sure. This is probably not the best parenting ever, but it works for us.

Also, for those keeping count, this is Post #100. HipHip. It's only taken me about two years to get to 100 posts, but look how regularly I'm posting now. I'll probably get to 200 before the end of the year.
