What this kid has been saying lately:
:: On the costume her sisters will wear to her birthday party: "They won't wear a costume. They can come dressed as babies."
:: On the prospect of a pirate party for said birthday: "Yes, but I don't want to say, 'Arrrr, me hearties.' I just want to talk like a normal person."
:: Often, for lots of reasons: "Isn't it wonderful?"
:: On being warned by me to be careful while jumping repeatedly from couch to floor: "I'm a superhero. I have the power."
:: Upon spilling most of her breakfast on the table and floor: "It's OK, Mummy, it doesn't have to be a problem."
Thank you, therapist.
