Setting: Driving to daycare, Jason Aldean Big Green Tractor, Blaring on the radio:
Em: Mom, I want to be the back up singer for this guy.
Me: Okay, you better start memorizing the lyrics then. And you need to sing louder.
Em: And maybe sometimes, he could be my back up singer and I could just sing it. Its good to share sometimes.
Setting: Driving home from lunch on the birthday day:
Em: Mom, next time we go to Subway for lunch can I bring my backpack?
Me: Sure, but what will you put in it?
Em: I think I'll bring some books. You were kind of boring at lunch. If I had a book, I'd have something to do.
Me: Thanks, Em. Love you back....
Setting: Driving home from daycare the other day:
Em: Mama, I'm feeling a little sad.
Me: What's wrong baby girl?
Em: I'm sad because Daddy loves his chickens more than me.
Me: MmmmHmmm.....welcome to my club sister. (cough) I mean, of course he loves you more than his chickens. Remember how he ate that chicken last year because it was crowing so loud.....He'd never eat you. That's love right there.
