Ollie: “I know 7 bad words.” Alex: “Oh I know WAY more than that!”
Alex: “I’m kinda if sad I gave you that check. I wanted to put it in the bank.” Sara: “Oh, for college money?” Alex: “No, that’s silly! To buy one of those things….hmmm… For when I’m a grown up? Um, what’s it called…it’s black….a coffin!”
::Alex doing a double take:: Alex: “Oh, for a second you looked like The Lord.”

Alex: “I’m trying to eat breakfast and then here comes Ollie and he’s like, ‘I don’t know what to get, so I’m just going to do a silly dance!'” Me: “Yeah, Ollie is pretty good at distracting you.” Alex: “Well, he does it because he loves me and wants me to be happy.”
Awww! This is both sweet and 100% accurate on all counts.
