Ava: Hey Mom, doesn't Swana (small gosling toy) look great after her bath?
Me: You mean from the cheese? (Ava had been rolling Swana around in some Parmesan cheese and calling it a bath.)
Ava: No silly, I mean the bath she took yesterday in your water glass! (Post-cheese I'm sure).
Ava: Mom, we should put on some music, you know that kind I like (stutters, searches for the right word). . .Rock and ROLL!!!
I pull into a McDonalds (rare indeed). Ava: are. you. KIDDING. ME?
Ava: Why are you making that face? Is it because you want the baby to come right this minute?
Me: Yes, yes I do!
Ava: Well. It's NOT going to HAPPEN!
