Jack: Mommy, why do you cheer and get so happy when I wake up in the morning?
Me: Oh Jack! Because I just love you so much!
Jack: Well then, do you not love me when I am still sleeping in my bed at night time?
Me: Jack, I always love you! Always!
Me: Emily (my 16 year-old, sweety cousin who visited us this past weekend), would you like blueberry pancakes or plain pancakes?
Emily: I'll have plain pancakes.
Jack: Mommy, but we don't really eat planes, right? We can't eat plane pancakes, right?
Me thinking: Oh jeez, it's darn early to be explaining the difference between "plain" and "plane".
But, I tried.
