**Abbie was being particularly annoying one night and I told her to quit bugging me because I was trying to get stuff done. She immediately ran up to Mark, who was also working on stuff, and said, “Do you want me to bug you??”
**I had the kids with me when I was grocery shopping. It was a really windy day and when we came out of the store the receipt blew out of one of the bags, across the parking lot. I chased it but never caught it. Abbie was really upset and kept saying that our “secret” blew away in the wind. I told her it was a receipt and then she started called it a “resecret”. She finally has it right now and calls it a receipt.
**My parents were down visiting and they call me “bear”. After a while of hearing this, Abbie looked at my mom and said, “She’s not a bear. She’s mommy!”
**There was a mosquito flying around the car and Mark smashed it. Abbie wanted to see it so Mark showed her the smashed mosquito on his hand. Abbie’s response was, “Oh, he’s so cute!!”.
**We pulled into a Hardee’s and Abbie pointed to the sign and said, “There’s a twinkle, twinkle little star!!”
