"Mom, can we go to Old McDonalds today for lunch?"
She claps her hands with glee and says, "They have the best ketchup in the world, don't they!"
We're watching the girls' favorite new cartoon, Olivia. This particular episode is about a new girl also named Olivia joining the class.
I tell Bella that one day she may have another Isabella in her class.
She nods, knowingly, and says, "Oh, yes. Or a Brandon, or an Ally, or a Meagan."
The girls are playing outside and their "five more minutes" is about up. Ava doesn't want to go in and begins her fit.
Bella warns her, "Ava! We can't stay out here by ourselves because we might get nabbed! Mommy & Daddy would miss us and we'd miss them. And if they weren't nice people who nabbed us then who would take me to school?"
On our way to their cousin Channing's house (hubby and I had a hot date) Bella pipes up from the back seat, "I bet the first thing Channing said when she woke up this morning was "Bella!"
Then we hear Ava mumble, "Thass stwange."
Little loves, they are.
