Me: Charlotte, did you hit your sister with a bat? Charlotte: (nods) But I couldn’t find a ball! Me: (snorts)

Riding in the car, talking about trees… Grandpa: Do you know how to tell the difference between a spruce and a hemlock? Charlotte: Yes. One is black, and one is…pink!

Dinner has devolved into knock-knock jokes. Charlotte: Knock-knock! Ben: Who’s there? Charlotte: Banana! Ben: Banana who? Charlotte: (with great enthusiasm) Bananaman!

Two little things

Funny moments from this morning’s commute: As we passed Cambridge Common (a restaurant/bar with a fantastic beer selection and remarkably delicious macaroni & cheese), Charlotte piped up from the back seat, “I can eat mac and cheese?” Apparently this was not the first time she shared that association.

She greets people (“Hi!”) and bids them farewell, complete with blowing kisses. […]
