More Than A Friend

  • Man At Church (MAC): *To Aiden and Chloë* Are you two actually friends?
  • Aiden (8): ...
  • MAC: Are you brother and sister?
  • Aiden: Yes.
  • MAC: And you actually like each other?
  • Aiden: Yeah.
  • MAC: That's great!

  • Aiden: *To Dad* What?
  • Robert: He's impressed that you and Chloë are friends with each other.
  • Aiden: Ok?
  • Robert: You know...that you two actually like each other.
  • Aiden: But it's much more than friends...
  • Robert: Really?
  • Aiden: And MUCH more than like...

(Oh man, best thing I've heard in a long, long time.)

Accurate Logic

  • Robert: Chloë, are you sorry now?
  • Chloë (3): Yes.
  • Robert: What are you sorry for?
  • Chloë: Because I was in time out.
  • Robert: Why were you in time out?
  • Chloë: Because you told me to.
  • Robert: Why did I tell you to?
  • Chloë: Because you were mad at me.
  • Robert: Why was I mad at you?
  • Chloë: Because your feelings were hurt.
  • Robert: Why were my feelings hurt?
  • Chloë: Because you had me in time out.
I have been bested by a child...

Just A Girl

  • Sarah: Are you going to be tough like a big kid?
  • Chloë (3): But I'm not a big kid. I'm a girl.
Then she went on to clarify:
  • Chloë: Aiden's the big kid and Daddy's the tough guy.
