I was wrestling the kids this evening before bedtime.
Maria said: you can you can't hurt me because I'm five, and you're almost dead.
Me: I'm not that old.
Maria: Yes, you're almost to the age of your death.
The other day Maria asked if we could use some of the money that we earn to buy toys. We responded with something standard like: you already have toys, and there are other things to spend money on beside toys.
So Maria said: well yeah, we need to buy food too, we couldn't live if we just had toys, toys, TOYS!
