background: Eating supper with our family after returning from a shopping trip with her Nana for birthday clothes. Somehow she talked Nana into allowing her to bring home all her new clothes.

me: Libby, you understand you won't have a present to open from Nana and Poppa at your birthday party since you brought home all your birthday clothes.
her: That's okay (then, in a whisper) because I didn't invite them!

background: Browsing an online Christian bookstore to replace a duplicate Bible Grandpa and Grammy bought her.

me: Oh, look! It's a book about Daniel in the lion's den! That was one of my favorite stories when I was your age!
her: No, I don't want any of that Jesus stuff. I already have a bible.
