Della: My spirit animal is kitties, lions, cheetahs, elephants, and vultures.

Me: Hmm, why vultures?

Della: Because they eat dead people and like stinky smells.

Della was telling me about having fun with Jackson on the playground. I said, “Oh that’s nice, what were you playing?” She said, “We weren’t playing. We were spending time together.”

Della calls me from the back room. I come running. She says, can you get me water with ice? I sigh and roll my eyes and go get it for her. When I hand it over she says, I love you. I say, oh that’s sweet of you to say. She says, I feel like I’m using you like a servant. I say, yeah kind of. She says, when you made that noise – sigh – it kind of sounded like that. I said, yeah you’re right, you’re very smart.

Della: She worries she’s not perfect.
