Upon Hearing The Following From Calvin and Mama

C: I'm one of the fastest kids in class. Donovan is probably the fastest. He was running super fast in the gym from wall to wall to wall!!

M: Donovan... I think I know him, blonde kid right?

C: Yep.

Ellerie: BLONDE???? He's BLONDE???? How does he see where he's GOING???

At the Salvation Army with Aunt Laurie

Mama: Ellie, get dressed and come out RIGHT NOW. I am not going to ask you again.

(From inside the dressing room.)

Elle: Are you kidding me? Without my coat on?

In the Car on the Way to Nana and Papa's

(Calvin and Tate had been arguing and Cal was getting rather mouthy from the back of the van.)

Mom: Cal, your mouth needs to stop. It's done. You know, Nana has soap at her house to, so watch it. Listen, let's just talk about something else. Something nice. What do you think Nana is going to have to eat?

The Bird (happily): SOAP!

Mama: Ellie, see that yellow truck? That's like the kind of truck Daddy wants to get someday.

Ellerie after a longish pause: I wish we could get a Taxi.
