Mom, if I had a choice between a puhmillion pieces of gum and one, I’d choose the puhmillion. (5yr old)

me: Ok, didn’t we have a talk about there being no such thing as a puhmillion?

Yes. So mom, if I had a choice between a thousand pieces of gum…

….. 5 miles down the road ……

me: Hey! I just saw a shooting star!

7yr old boy: Are you going to make a wish?

me: Yes I already did. I wish your dad to be home safely from his trip.

5 yr old girl, completely matter of fact and without missing a beat because obviously she’s been thinking of this:  I wish to be a mermaid.

me: What do you wish for T?

7yr old boy: Mom there are wish rules. I can’t tell you. But, I wish for everybody to just be quiet!!!!

And so ended our conversation as we pulled into the yard tonight.
