Imogen: Can we go to the bank today to turn my American money into Canadian money?

Me: Maybe. We'll see. We have lots to do.

Imogen, with a look of deep concentration: How do they change the money into Canadian?

Me: Well they don't actually change it; they trade us. We give them American money and they trade it for Canadian money.

Imogen, with a look of sudden understanding: Oh! So it's not magic like with a wand because that would not make any sense.

(And that's a reminder to me to be as literal as possible with her! Also, a great glimpse at how her brain attempts to make sense of the seemingly impossible.)

December 30, part deux

Imogen: I was thinking about wearing a fancy dress for New Year's Eve.

Me: Nice. Which one?

Imogen: Well, actually, I think it might be in the dishwasher.

Imogen: When you're 100 do you die?

Me: Most people die before they're 100.

Imogen: I don't want to die.

Me: You probably won't die for a very long time.

Imogen: Well, when I die I want to become a vampire.

Me: Oh really?

Imogen: Yes. Because then I will be dead-alive for infinity forever.

Me: What about the part where you have to drink people's blood?

Imogen: Mommy! Why do you have to ruin everything?

Imogen: Since we've been reading Charlotte's Web, I've realized something.

Me: What's that?

Imogen: I realized that we need a pet pig.

MamaJen: Imogen, I'm getting tired of all the whining.  It needs to stop.

Imogen: Well MamaJen, then I think you picked the wrong family!

Imogen: Mom, I'm done peeing and brushing my teeth.

Me (joking): But not at the same time, ha ha!

Imogen: Um, why not at the same time? I just held my toothbrush in my mouth when I wiped.

Me <facepalm>
