She is so clever and perceptive that I shouldn't be surprised at the things Mia says, but they are often amusing. It's always interesting and entertaining to see a four year old's perspective on things.

It was snowing and Mia said, "Mama, it's still winter. We thought it was spring, but we were wrong!"

While in the car, we saw an old VW Beetle. Mia laughed and exclaimed, "Look at that funny car. It's too small. It looks like a clown car!"

Mia: "I can't wait until I grow up so I can be a princess."I asked her what her second choice was in case she couldn't be a princess.
Mia: "I will just play dress up!"
And just for the record, she knew nothing about the Royal Wedding at the time. This was completely out of the blue.

If not a princess, then maybe a lawyer... We had the following conversation at lunchtime:
Mia: "I'm still hungry. I want another PB and J."Me: "Do you want apple or banana?"
Mia: "I want more PB and J."Me: "I'm offering you fruit."
Mia: "Jelly is a fruit."I didn't even know what to say. However, after a couple of minutes she told me she was ready for apple.

Mia: "I love you, Mother." (She normally calls me "Mama" or "Mommy" and more recently "Mom" on occasion, but this is a new one.)Me: "I love you, too, but why did you call me 'Mother'?"
Mia: "Because it's your middle name."
So, apparently you do learn something new every day!
