Della (crying): I’m crying because you said I sound like a horse.
Me: No, I said you sound hoarse. Like you’re losing your voice.
George (at school): Miss Jack, why are you so bossy and strict all the time?
Miss Jack: Because I’m an Anderson.
George: Ohhhhh….my mom is an Anderson, and she is the bossiest and the strictest.
George: Della and daddy are best buddies and you and me are best buddies, right?
George: Mom? Does Donald Trump get presents from Santa?
Liz gave my dad cocktail napkins that say, “Good girls with bad habits make the best friends.” This was a message that really resonated with Della. She said earnestly, “I’m a good girl, with bad habits, and I’m a very good friend.” My dad asked her what her bad habits were. She said, “Sucking my thumb, grinding my teeth, licking my lips, and picking my nose and eating it. And farting a lot.”
