After being caught cutting her stuffed dog's hair with a pair of safety scissors:
Mia: "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to."Me: "Yes you did. It was a conscious decision."
Mia: "It was?"

While talking on the phone with Mia, who had been at "Camp Grandma" for 6 days (Wow, that's a long time!), she said, "Hi Mommy! I miss you... and I really miss Ritzy!" (Nice to know she missed the dog more than she missed me.)

Pretending to return from taking her doll to the doctor:
Mia: "The doctor said that Baby has an ear infection. It was caused by drinking too much milk. That's what makes the green goo come out."Me: "Really? I've never heard of that."
Mia: "That's what the doctor said." (Obviously, this is why I am not a doctor.)
Mia: "Help! I can't reach the toilet paper because I'm tired and I'm sleeping on the toilet."

Mia: "It's hard having two children, isn't it?"Me: "What do you mean?"
Mia: "We're being goofballs and stuff like that. That's why it's hard having two children."

Mia: "Mom, can you take a picture of me and Ritzy with your REAL camera?" (She asks me to take pictures often and sometimes I hold up a pretend camera and say, "click" but obviously, she has caught on to this.)
Me: "No, you're naked!" (Actually, she was wearing underwear, but still, not gonna happen.)
Mia: "But I like naked pictures."Me: "I don't even know what to say to that."
