Commentary by six-year-old Lily on the Puff the Magic Dragon verse about Jackie Paper growing up and the dragon being sad:
He needs an octopus or a shark to play with. They would be better anyway, because they speak his language. He’s a dragon!
Mike: I’m leaving for work.
Anna (three years old): No! Work is closed today.
Lily teaching Anna how to do a somersault:
Put your hands and your head down, then roll. Good! That’s a somersault! Some people will tell you that you should do them in summer, but that’s just a joke.
Emma (nine years old): California is going to fall into the ocean.
Johnny (seven years old): Is that bad?
Emma: I don’t know.
Emma: Someday I want a doll that I can name Optimization. I don’t know what it means, but it sounds like a great name for a doll.
She settled on giving her doll Diamond Optimization as a middle name.
