5. What qualities do you look for in a boy/girl?

Littlest: [grabs the rest of the wipes and flings them across the room, then tackles Mommy's legs from behind and sticks his head between her legs like a goat getting milked.]
Littler: [blinking a lot] You have cracks in your eye. You know why? 'Cause you're a Dad.
Little: We don't have to look for short hair. [why not?] Because some boys don't have haircuts as often as most boys do.

Littlest: Di? Diaaaaa. [grabs Mommy's backpack and hurls it to the floor] Wah wah WWWAAAH! [Picks up a pair of Little's pants and puts them on his head like a hat, twirling around until he crashes from dizzyness, comes over to the computer, bangs his head on the keyboard and starts biting the monitor. He is now running around with the pants again trying to eat them.]

Littler: [nods] I would do that every day. [what?] Go with a boy every day.

Littler:Um, I think heart cookies, and the thing Tori got for us. Heart cookies that are big, and they are yummy!

14. How can you tell your parents love each other?

Littlest: [hugs Daddy's leg] No, no. Dadobah. [Slams into the door. Starts taking parts off the vacuum and dances like a crazy monster until he overwhelms Littler, who runs away. Tackles Mom over and over again. Hits mom, the computer and Littler with vacuum attachments. When Littler takes the vacuum attachments away, he runs sad to Mommy but decides instead to put on Little's shoes and stomp around in them. Gives Mommy a great big hug. He is now walking around in 6-year-old-girl's dress shoes and a onesie, screatching and stomping.] Quack, quack, quack, quack.
Littler: 'Cause I love you. [but how can you tell that Mommy and Daddy love each other?] They hug each other.
