While in the car:
Anne-with-an-e: When I grow up, I want to go to Tokyo.
Ramona: When I grow up, I want to be Pinocchio.
While watching a "Rapunzel" video:
Anne-with-an-e: That dress looks like a Marc Chagall painting.
(tip to moms: you too can have children who sound impressively knowledgeable about art ... pick up the Masterpieces Coloring Book ... amaze and astound your friends ... yes, you too can see the Mona Lisa with purple hair .... )
After a shopping trip in which the girls spent some Easter gift certificates:
Betsy: This was a good day ... I got a new hat, stuff for my hair, and my new shoes can double as slippers. Now, is that great or what?
