I am loved

Backstory:  We like Legos. M is very creative with her Legos and one of our recent builds was an airplane.  After it was built, we named the pilot Steve Kerplansky.

Last night (6/22/11)
M:  Mom, can I show you my Lego people?

Me:  Sure

M:  Bringing out her people all arranged and begins naming/explaining them.  There's Steve, Steve Kerplansky.

Me:  I love Steve Kerplansky.

M:  Steve Kerplansky loves you.

Monday, June 6, 2011 - Driving near Milan, MI
M: Mom, I just saw a sign that said "Don't pick up chipmunks!"
Me: What?!  Don't pick up chipmunks?
M: Yes, there was a sign.
Me (looking around and finally noting the prison near the side of thr highway). Did the sign say, "Don't pick up hitchikers?"
M: No, it said chipmunks.

***discussion follows about what are hitchikers, why the sign is posted, prison breaks, and the importance of not hitting chipmunks OR picking up hitchikers ***

While rough-housing with me:
M (yelling): Dad! Dad! Come save me, Mom's going to eat me
Me: Why would I eat you? You wouldn't taste very good.
M: I'd taste like bacon.
