What Abigail said to me, as she watched me try on clothes in a dressing room:
“That looks nice, Mom. You could grow into that.”

At dinner I said I was suddenly feeling sleepy. The girls encouraged me to take a nap.
Michaela: “Go to bed, Mom. We’ll take care of everything.”

Abigail: “Sometime when you guys are gone I want to watch Elisabeth. ”
Me: “You want Daddy and me to go away somewhere?”
Abigail: “You can have a special vacation.”
Me: “Maybe when you’re 16 or so.”
Abigail:”When I’m 16, it will be my treat to watch Elisabeth…”
