Me: “Lucy, you need to get your attitude in check.”
Lu: “Okay, Mama, my attitude is on crack.”
[filling up ice trays]
Lu: “Why are you making icebergs?”
“You know that yesterday a long time ago?”
“Oh Christmas Tree, oh Christmas Tree. Oh how you make me royalty.”
[She has a hard time with cliche-type phrases.]
Let the show be on.

Oh no my arms are stuck. You have to stay in my bed all night. Okay you can go. If you turn on my nighttime song and don’t make too much noise, I’ll let it slip.
Landon presses the button and the Siri double beep sounds.
“He’s talking to that robot that you guys talk to sometimes.”

Lu: “I am a magic wish-granting fairy; what do you wish?”
Me: “I wish for a house that always stays clean.”
Lu: “Can you wish a fun wish? Like, ‘I wish Lucy never had to play alone?’ You know, like a kid wish I can give with the dip of my wand.”
Lu: “Mom. Do you want to play destiny unicorn princess? It’s only for superhero girls but you’re on the guest list.”
Lu: “This is the sword of destiny!! [Holds up Dora the Explorer hockey stick.] … Ooooh. A rainbow.”
Lu: “You’re a mom, so that means you can do anything. Right?”
