Here are a few recent conversations with my four daughters for your amusement:
11-year-old: Dad, have you seen my shoes?
Me: You lost your shoes again? I'm going to staple your shoes to your feet.
Me: Which episode of Alfred Hitchcock are we ready to watch?
10-year-old: We last watched "The Two Sisters."
6-year-old: No we didn't.
10-year-old: Yes we did. That was the one in which the woman killed her father with the ax, remember?
6-year-old: Oh yeah.
Me: Girls, when you close the shower curtain, you have to make sure you pull it all the way to the wall like this. (demonstrates by pulling top curtain corner)
8-year-old: But, Dad, it's harder for us.
Me: Why's that?
8-year-old: We're little.
Me: Oh yeah.
6-year-old: If the moon is full, can it overflow?
