And now, the zinger…

Liv: Mama, close your eyes. I’ll give you a massage?

Me: Liv, why is my face wet? What did you use?

Liv: Spit. I’m using it like lotion.

    Upon seeing an ornately-painted VW wagon parked outside: “I want to paint our car! I will paint you, dada and a green Bella.”   Me: “It’s spaghetti night tonight!” Liv: “No, it’s DESSERT NIGHT tonight!”   Tom: “Watch it there, slick.” Liv: “I’m not slick.
